According to SABC News, the South African Police Service's national spokesperson, Brigadier Athlenda Mathe, said that the NATJOINTS took necessary precautions to ensure that all the MPs attending the first Parliamentary sitting were safe. She also noted that the NATJOINTS has members in place to ensure the proceedings pass smoothly.

The seventh administration is expected to be elected after the African National Congress's National Executive Committee opted for a national unity government. The Economic Freedom Fighters' president, Julius Malema, rejected the government of national unity. Simultaneously, the ANC had met with the Democratic Alliance and seemingly formed a coalition, with Cyril Ramaphosa as their president of choice.
