Min tyd vir kommentaar op grondonteiening

Min tyd is oor vir die publiek om kommentaar te lewer op die Parlementêre besluit rakende onteiening van grond sonder vergoeding en hoe dit moontlik wysiging van die Grondwet van SA kan meebring. Die regering het slegs 45 dae, vanaf 13 April tot 31 Mei 2018, gegee vir openbare kommentaar op die voorstel en die Vryemark Stigting wys daarop dat dit verregaande min tyd is vir kommentaar op wat waarskynlik die belangrikste wetlike voorstel is sedert 1996.

Die Stigting lewer o.a. soos volg kommentaar op die kwessie en dit word in Engels aangehaal soos dit ontvang is:

“The Free Market Foundation is appalled and alarmed that expropriation without compensation of property (EWC), probably South Africa’s most important constitutional debate since the 1996 formation of the Constitution, was given only 45 days for written submissions. Property rights are integral to the basic structure of the Constitution and the Rule of Law. Removal of property rights will damage the fabric of the Constitution and may put its broad legitimacy into jeopardy.

“EWC will have disastrous consequences for all property owners, white and black, as well as the economy in general as international and domestic investors lose confidence in the government’s intent regarding protection of property. Moreover, government has no mandate to change the Constitution. The Institute of Race Relations’ recent Reasons for Hope study shows that a small minority of South Africans (1% total, 1% black, 2% coloured, 4% Indian, 1% white) regard land reform as an important issue. What most people are concerned about are unemployment (35% total, 38% black, 42% coloured, 30% Indian, 16% white) and education (27% total, 26% black, 24% coloured, 42% Indian, 46% white).

“Any departure from Section 25 by government must be justifiable in accordance with the limitations provision in Section 36. This provision makes expropriation without compensation possible, i.e. the Constitution need not be amended.”

Om kommentaar te lewer op die voorstel, is egter nie maklik nie en lewer 'n Google-soektog nie veel op nie. Die beste skyn te wees, om die webwerf www.ruraldevelopment.gov.za te besoek - volg hierdie skakel.
