Constitutional amendment fails | News Article

Three years since Parliament first adopted a motion to consider amending the Constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation, the process has come to nought.

Opposition parties - including the EFF who originally initiated the motion in early 2018 - refused to support the bill over a major sticking point on the state custodianship of land.

The House required a two-thirds majority to support changing the Constitution.

The focus will now shift to the Expropriation Bill, which is currently making its way through the Parliamentary process.
