A.N.C. Tells Jacob Zuma to Step Down as South Africa’s President


South African President Jacob Zuma was presented with two options by his party Monday: Resign within 48 hours or face dismissal.

After weeks of resisting efforts to dislodge him, embattled South African President Jacob Zuma is expected to resign Wednesday after the party he longtime led, the African National Congress, called for him to step down.

South Africa's ruling party ordered Jacob Zuma on Tuesday to step down as head of state but gave him no firm deadline to go, setting the stage for a potential fight to wrest him from power.

If he refuses to resign, the next step would likely be a no-confidence vote in Parliament, one that could embarrass the governing party.
