I am hesitant to post about this here, so I thought I’d test the waters in off topic first… This just crossed the wire.
The National Council of Provinces has agreed that section 25 of the Constitution be amended to make expropriation of land without compensation more explicit.
This follows the National Assembly doing so yesterday. This means the matter is now a duly adopted resolution of Parliament.
Adoption of the committee’s report by both the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces means that a Bill may be introduced, according to the procedures in Section 74 of the Constitution and the Rules of Parliament.
Details of the Bill would have to be published in the Government Gazette at least 30 days before it is introduced. This is to allow for public comment. The Bill must also be submitted to the nine provincial legislatures.
[More details on the process that still needs to be followed]
Stuff like this worries me.
