Mildred Oliphant has joined a long list of former ministers, who failed to make President Cyril Ramaphosa's new Cabinet, to resign as an ordinary Member of Parliament. 

Nonceba Mhlauli, spokesperson in the office of the African National Congress (ANC) chief whip, confirmed to News24 that the former labour minister had officially tendered her resignation.

She joins a growing list of ANC MP's who have bowed out in recent weeks after being left out of Ramaphosa's recently formed Cabinet. 

Fourteen members of the previous Cabinet did not make it into Ramaphosa's new Cabinet announced in May.

Other members, like Nomvula Mokonyane and Malusi Gigaba, declined their seats in Parliament before the swearing in of MPs.
