The Democratic Alliance (DA) has adopted a resolution to protect Section 25 of the Constitution, emphasising that it is opposed to land expropriation without compensation.
The adoption has been unanimously agreed upon by the party’s Congress underway in Pretoria this weekend. This comes as Parliament prepares to conduct consultations on how land can be expropriated without compensation.
The DA has vowed to continue to protect the so called “property clause” in the Constitution.
This resolution was adopted following a robust debate on land reform within the Congress.
DA leader Mmusi Maimane has been vocal that there is plenty of vacant land belonging to government that could be considered for expropriation without compensation.
The party’s stance on land has seen its Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor, Athol Trollip, facing a possible vote of no confidence from the EFF.
