The Democratic Alliance’s (DA) bid to have the African National Congress’ (ANC) policy of cadre deployment declared unconstitutional and unlawful has failed.

This comes after the High Court in Pretoria dismissed their application with costs.

In January last year, a full bench heard the DA’s application to declare cadre deployment unconstitutional and unlawful.

The opposition party argued that the policy was at the root of failures at state-owned enterprises.

The ruling party, which opposed the application, argued that the DA sought to limit the ruling party’s right to freedom of expression.
