Info bill: Who voted how
Cape Town - The names of who voted for and against the contentious protection of state information bill in the National Assembly will emerge on Wednesday.
Opposition parties called for a division before the bill was approved.
The Assembly's electronic voting mechanism records the way individual MPs vote and this is published in the official "minutes of proceedings in the National Assembly" - usually the following day.
However, it can be almost safely assumed that the 229 votes in favour of the bill all came from ANC MPs, and the 107 votes recorded against the measure from the combined opposition.
There were two abstentions, also most likely from the opposition benches.
As the ANC has 264 MPs in the Assembly, this means that 35 were absent for the vote, despite ANC caucus spokesperson Moloto Mothapo reportedly having said Tuesday's session was compulsory.
The Democratic Alliance has 67 MPs, the Congress of the People 30, the Inkatha Freedom Party 18, and the Independent Democrats, the United Democratic Movement, and Freedom Front Plus four each.
The African Christian Democratic Party and United Christian Democratic Party have three each.
The Pan Africanist Congress, the Azanian People's Organisation, the Minority Front, and African People's Convention have one MP each.
The combined opposition numbers 136 MPs, meaning 27 were not present in the House for the vote.
