The ACDP wishes all Christians a blessed and peaceful Easter weekend.
ACDP Member of Parliament Cheryllyn Dudley today said that “The intimidation tactics used by members of the Health Committee, especially ANC and EFF members, were aimed to distract other MPs from grasping the relevance of the Choice of Termination of Pregnancy (CTOP) Amendment Bill. Calling women in politics ‘emotional’ is a well-known intimidation tactic experienced by women in politics globally”.
The ACDP welcomes the Political Party Funding Bill which aims to regulate and make private donations to political parties represented in Parliament and Provincial Legislatures, transparent.
The right to human dignity is arguably the most important and fundamental right enshrined in the Constitution. It is the one right that logically precedes and sustains all other human rights. It is one of the founding values of our democracy and constitutional order and it infuses and permeates the whole of our social and legal order.
ACDP Member of Parliament Cheryllyn Dudley today said that “The ACDP is angered to hear we have lost another child in this horrific manner on our watch as a Parliament responsible for the oversight of the Education Department”.
Many areas of South Africa are experiencing drought conditions, with Cape Town experiencing the worst droughts in its recorded history.
The ACDP has always acknowledged that there has been historical socio-economic injustice in South Africa around the question of land ownership, and our black population has been at the receiving end of forced dispossession. That is why the ACDP supports fair, legal and just reform and land redistribution.
The ACDP believes more must be done to reduce corruption, and wasteful and irregular state expenditure.
