Press Release: Approval process for the Ratification of ICESCR - 23 August 2013

Subsequent to Cabinet’s announcement in October 2012, Parliament extended an invitation to the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development (DOJ& CD) to make a presentation on 20 August 2013, as part of the formalities required for the final approval of government’s decision to ratify the ICESCR. In its presentation DOJ& CD reaffirmed South Africa’s commitment to ending poverty and social inequality.
