In his draft motion, Mthembu proposed that the house establish an ad hoc committee in terms of rule 253 to initiate and introduce legislation amending section 25 of the constitution.
The draft motion further states that the house “passes a constitutional amendment bill before the end of the fifth democratic parliament in order to allow for expropriation without compensation”.
The proposed ad hoc committee would consist of 11 voting MPs, six crom the ANC, two from the DA, one from the EFF and another two representing the smaller parties. It would include another 14 non-voting MPs, with the ANC represented by two in this category, the DA and EFF one each, and 10 coming from the smaller parties.
The draft motion is due to be debated at 2pm in what is the National Assembly’s last sitting for 2018.
