The Joint Constitutional Review Committee on Thursday adopted a resolution that Section 25 of the Constitution be amended to allow expropriation without compensation.

Following a lengthy process of public consultation and deliberation, the EFF's Floyd Shivambu sponsored a motion on Thursday recommending that the Constitution be amended, mirroring the recommendation the ANC previously proposed to the committee.

The DA's Annelie Lotriet offered a different motion, recommending that the Constitution not be amended because the Constitution already makes provision for land reform.

The committee dismissed her motion, with 12 votes against four, and adopted the EFF's proposal by the same margin.
