There have been many mixed feelings flying around concerning the resignation of the President. Some parties feel that it was a wise move by the ANC and some feel that the idea of a recall was not at all a wise idea.

Cosatu yesterday welcomed the ANC’s decision to recall President Thabo Mbeki, they also applauded the ANC on the way they carried out what could have been a very difficult and damaging procedure. Patrick Craven says “the Cosatu central executive committee welcomes the ANC’s decision to recall President Thabo Mbeki. We also congratulated the ANC on the successful way in which they carried out something that could have been a very difficult and damaging procedure.”

Other parties, such as the African Christian Democratic party says it is not happy about the way Mbeki has been pushed out by supporters of the Zuma faction. ACDP leader Kenneth Moshoeshoe says “we believe that the man should have been given an opportunity to present his case, particularly after he denied the fact that he was interfering with the NPA.”
