South Africa's scandal-hit President Jacob Zuma faced a no-confidence vote in parliament Thursday, with the main opposition party calling on ruling ANC lawmakers to vote him out of office.Zuma, who looked certain to survive the vote despite mounting anger within his own party, last week came under further pressure after a corruption probe raised fresh allegations of misconduct.Zuma, 74, who came to power in 2009, retains strong loyalty among ANC (Africa National Congress) lawmakers and many party activists, particularly in rural areas.Zuma's term in office ends in 2019, but the ANC is due to elect a new party leader at the end of next year and could then decide to replace him as head of state.
