The Portfolio Committee on Trade and Industry, having considered the subject of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Amendment Bill [B 42 – 2012] , referred to it and classified by the Joint Tagging Mechanism (JTM) as a section 76 Bill, reports the Bill with amendments [B 42A – 2012].

The committee further reports that the Democratic Alliance, the Congress of the People, and the Freedom Front Plus (FF Plus) objected to the amendments in clause 1(b) only as it relates to the definition of black people. The FF Plus objected to clause 3 for not including “… subject to Section 63 of the Employment Equity Act”.

The following amendments were rejected:

1) “black people” refers to historically disadvantaged persons who:

a) Are citizens of the Republic of South Africa by birth or descent; or

b) Became citizens of the Republic of South Africa by naturalisation –

i) Before 27 April 1994; or

ii) On or after 27 April 1994 and who would have been entitled to acquire citizenship by naturalisation prior to that date but were precluded from doing so by Apartheid policies; and

c) Due to the apartheid policy that had been in place, did not have the franchise in national elections between 1959 and prior to the introduction of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1983 (Act No 110 of 1983) or the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1993 (Act No 200 of 1993) (“the Interim Constitution”).
