Despite being impeached earlier this year following allegations of misconduct related to a case involving Jacob Zuma, Hlophe has taken up the mantle of leader of the opposition.

According to Hlophe, the MK party views itself as the official opposition, given that the Democratic Alliance (DA) has joined the Government of National Unity (GNU).

John Hlophe emphasized that the MK party is committed to working collaboratively with other opposition parties, specifically mentioning the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and the African Transformation Movement (ATM).

Goliath reminded the new MPs of their duties as outlined in Section 48 of the Constitution, which mandates that all members must swear or affirm their faithfulness to the Republic and obedience to the Constitution before commencing their duties.
