Land, Gay Rights Up for Discussion

Proposals to change the Constitution's provisions on sexual orientation and property rights have been referred to party caucuses for consideration

Proposals to change the Constitution's provisions on sexual orientation and property rights have been referred to party caucuses for consideration, according to Die Burger newspaper.

Die Burger reports that Parliament's constitutional review committee has made the unusual move of referring these proposals to political parties.

There is a proposal that section 25 of the Constitution (enshrining the right to property and the rights of property owners and of society as a whole) be amended in order to create a new window period for the submission of land claims, while the Pan Africanist Congress proposed that section 25 be scrapped and replaced.

Once a year, the committee considers proposals from the public on possible changes to the Constitution.
