Johannesburg - Suspended Ipid boss Robert McBride expressed confidence on Tuesday ahead of a ruling by the Constitutional Court on his suspension.

McBride approached the court with a confirmatory application in May 2016 following a successful challenge of the matter in the North Gauteng High Court.

Throughout the challenge McBride, maintained the Ipid act was unconstitutional in giving Nhleko powers over the independent institution.

On Tuesday morning, he arrived early for proceedings, saying he was certain that things would go his way.

"I am confident that the constitutional aspects of this matter will be clarified," he told reporters outside the court.
