South Africa: Joint Constitutional Review Committee to Wrap Up Section 25 Public Hearings in Bigger Venue in Western Cape

The Joint Constitutional Review Committee (CRC) will next week wrap up its provincial public hearings with both delegations holding hearings in the Western Cape. The committee also announced a bigger venue for the final day of its hearings.

 

The committee decided to change the venue for the final provincial leg of the public hearings in order to accommodate as many people as possible in one venue. The new venue for the final provincial public hearings programme on Saturday, 4 August 2018, attended by the full committee complement, will now be at the Friends of God Church in Goodwood, Cape Town.

On Wednesday, a delegation will start with public hearings in Oudtshoorn before it moves to Beaufort West the next day. The other delegation will hold public hearings in Citrusdal on Thursday and in Swellendam on Friday.

The committee was instructed by the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces to ascertain whether a review of section 25 of the Constitution and other clauses are necessary, to make it possible for the state to expropriate land in the public interest without compensation, and propose the necessary constitutional amendments where necessary. The committee already held hearings in all provinces.
