The African National Congress has noted and respects the unanimous judgement delivered by the Constitutional Court today in the matter relating to compliance with remedial action set out in a report of the Public Protector. The Constitutional Court is and remains the guardian of the Constitution of the Republic and the final arbiter on matters before it, hence the ANC welcomes the clarity provided by the Court on the binding nature of the powers of the Public Protector.
The ANC once again reaffirms our full confidence in the judiciary and the upholding rule of law in South Africa. Given the serious nature of the judgement delivered, the African National Congress will study it in detail and comment further in due course.
