Cape Town - Parliament has taken another step by passing a motion that will establish an ad hoc committee that will draft a Bill to amend the Constitution for the expropriation of land without compensation.
ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu tabled the motion in the National Assembly on Thursday and the majority of MPs approved the motion.
The ANC wants Parliament to finalise the process before the elections.
But opposition MPs were not happy with the motion and accused the ANC of rushing through the process. They said the process followed was flawed.
The tabling of the motion for the establishment of the ad hoc committee comes after both the National Assembly and National Council of Provinces adopted the report on the expropriation of land without compensation this week.
