The African Transformation Movement managed to secure two seats, but former ANC official Mzawanele Manyi won't be on the party's benches. Instead, party head Vuyolwethu Zungula and Thandiswa Marawu will be leading the way.

The Good party, led by Patricia de Lille, will be headed to the National Assembly and not the Western Cape provincial legislature as predicted, reports Eyewitness News.

Baby Tyawa, acting parliamentary secretary, says that they are ready to receive new members following the taking of the oath:
