Meeting Summary

In February 2018, the National Assembly adopted a motion proposed by the EFF, with amendments by the ANC, that Parliament's Constitutional Review Committee investigate mechanisms through which land can be expropriated without compensation. The Joint Constitutional Review Committee was mandated by the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces to propose the necessary constitutional amendments where applicable with regards to the kind of future land tenure regime needed. The Joint Constitutional Review Committee called for written public submissions on the review of section 25 of the Constitution (Property Clause) and other sections where necessary. The Committee organised public hearings  in all provinces across the country from 26 June 2018 to 4 August 2018 (see programme here).
