DA's e-toll court bid continues
The DA will today continue its bid to have e-tolling declared unconstitutional in court.
CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) will today continue its court bid to prove laws governing e-tolling are unconstitutional.
The official opposition claims a bill, which was passed in September 2013, should have been debated by the provinces as well as in Parliament.
Those opposing the application include President Jacob Zuma, the National Assembly speaker Max Sisulu and Transport Minister Dipuo Peters.
The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) will today continue arguments in the Western Cape High Court, to defend the implementation of e-tolling and the laws governing it.
The DA claims the Parliamentary process used to usher in the law was unconstitutional.
The party says the bill was incorrectly tagged as a Section 75 bill, which was only debated in Parliament.
The DA says it should have been a Section 76 bill, which is debated in both the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces.
The matter could be debated for a second time in Parliament if the court rules in favour of the DA.
