The National Assembly and National Council of Provinces has mandated the Constitutional Review Committee to:
- review section 25 of the Constitution and other sections where necessary, to make it possible for the state to expropriate land in the public interest without compensation;
- propose the necessary constitutional amendments where applicable with regards to the kind of future land tenure regime needed.
You are invited to object or support amendments to the constitution by providing comment below. Should you be at a loss for words, read the live input or documents below the form. Feel free to copy and paste into the message area provided. If you don’t take any action, your inaction will be regarded as tacit agreement. Closing date is midnight 31 May 2018.
It is important to note this is not simply a petition but the first step in an essential Participative Democracy process. And here’s the best bit; each comment must, by law, be individually acknowledged and considered by the Government. Had this been a petition, they would treat it as a single comment.
