EFF compels Ramaphosa to sign political party funding bill into law

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has challenged President Cyril Ramaphosa to sign the Political Party Funding Bill into law.

EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi says the ANC wants to keep their funders a secret.

The  party has challenged  President Cyril Ramaphosa to sign the Political Party Funding Bill into law.

Earlier the Presidency said it wanted to thoroughly scrutinise the bill to avoid any constitutional problems before signing it into law. Spokesperson, Khusela Diko, said the president wants thorough constitutional and legal scrutiny of the bills.

“It’s not really a delay signing these bills into law. The President has requested a very thorough process where an analysis is done and the constitutionality on these bills. He has also requested a full report on the submissions that have been made during the parliamentary processes. He is quite aware of the urgency of some of the bills that are sitting on the table, including the Public Audit Amendment Bill, the Protection of Information Bill, the Political Party Funding Bill. And they are all receiving the necessary attention.”

The Bill, which regulates party funding, was passed by both the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) and the National Assembly over three months ago.
