Cyril Ramaphosa has been elected President of South Africa in the first sitting of the sixth democratically elected Parliament. The ANC's Chief Whip Pemmy Majodina nominated Ramaphosa and it was seconded by David Ntombela. The process was presided over by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng. Meanwhile, Thandi Modise has been elected the new speaker of the National Assembly. Modise received 250 votes, Richard Majola of the DA 83 while 17 ballots were spoilt. Lechesa Tsenoli of the ANC was re-elected unopposed as the Deputy Speaker. Modise thanked the members for her nomination and election. She said she had learnt from working with the previous speaker Baleka Mbete about the importance of consultation and urged members to respect the smallest parties: "Let us respect even the tiniest of the voices of those who got elected into this house. In other words it doesn't matter how angry you may be or how different the views of the other member must be this member in this house represents a constituency out there and before we get into the throat of this member we must remember thousands of people voted for this member to come and represented their voice and interest in this house."
