Steenhuisen said that for Faku to get a seat at parliament she had to sign a nomination acceptance form from the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) declaring that she was not disqualified from standing for the elections in terms of any applicable legislation.
"If she was in fact not eligible for election at the time she signed this form, she fraudulently misrepresented her status and more serious consequences should follow," he said.
Steenhuisen said that in addition to writing to the Speaker for clarity, the DA will also submit an application to the IEC in terms of the Promotion of Access to Justice Act (PAIA), to obtain a copy of Faku's signed acceptance of nomination form.
"The DA finds the way the ANC has been abusing parliament appalling. Parliament is not a luxury boarding school for errant members and questionable characters.
"It is high time the ANC starts to respect parliament as the independent and constitutional institution that it is meant to be," said Steenhuisen.
