Christian Democratic Party applauds defiant ANC MP’s

The Christian Democratic Party has commended those members of the ANC who had the courage to openly abstain from voting for the Protection of State Information Bill in parliament on Tuesday.

CDP leader Theunis Botha says these members have shown the same determination that many in history have displayed during times of persecution.

Meanwhile the National Council of Provinces has established an ad hoc committee to consider and report the Protection of State Information Bill.

A resolution establishing the committee is expected to be announced by the NCOP’s chief whip today.

The draft law still needs to go to the NCOP, leaving the lobby groups with time to prepare to challenge the passing of the bill in the Constitutional Court.
