Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, says only the President Jacob Zuma is allowed to compel him to establish a commission of inquiry into state capture.
Ramaphosa is opposing a Constitutional Court application to order him to establish the commission.
The application has been brought by conservative civil rights organisation AfriForum, along with the Quaker Peace Centre, as well as the FW de Klerk Foundation.
This after former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, recommended that Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, appoint a judge to head a commission of inquiry into state capture.
Ramaphosa has reaffirmed his support for the establishment of a commission, despite his plans to oppose the application.
