DA hails Constitutional Court ruling over cadre deployment

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Democratic Alliance (DA) says the Constitutional Court judgment on cadre deployment marks one of the great victories in South African legal and democratic history.

The African National Congress (ANC) is left with four working days in which to hand over its cadre deployment records to the DA.

The court yesterday dismissed with costs the ANC’s final bid to seek leave to appeal the ruling ordering it to hand over the records to the DA.

The DA’s Leon Schreiber has welcomed the court judgment: “The ANC has finally run out of road and must now expose the dirty secrets it was so desperate to hide. This ruling will firstly ensure transparency, by forcing the ANC to reveal exactly how Ramaphosa’s cadre deployment committee laid the foundation for state capture by interfering in public appointment processes.”
