DA says Info Bill postponement highlights ANC internal struggle

Lusanda Bill
20 September 2011

The Democratic Alliance says the African National Congress must consider adding a public interest defence into the proposed Protection of Information Bill.

The Bill was meant to go up for debate in Parliament today.

The ANC has put a hold on the Bill after pressure from the public; it will be looked at only at the end of the year.

DA parliamentary leader Athol Trollip says the postponement shows that the ANC itself is struggling internally to justify the Bill’s passing.
