EFF Deputy president Floyd Shivambu appeared briefly in the Cape Town Magistrates Court.
A charge of assault was laid following an altercation between Shivambu and Media24 photographer Adrian de Kock outside Parliament in March last year.
Spokesperson of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in the Western Cape Eric Ntabazalila said the postponement is to allow Shivambu to consult his legal representatives.
'We have provided them with court documents such as the docket, while they await the video footage.”
Meanwhile Advocate Ross McKernan, who represented Shivambu, said he was still waiting to receive video evidence and images of the incident.
The case has been postponed to 28 January 2020.
