DA votes against Motion of Desirability on NHI
18 May 2022
Note to Editors: Please find an attached soundbite by Michele Clarke MP.
Today, in the Parliamentary portfolio committee on Health the DA unequivocally voted to reject the National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill.
The ANC, however, dug in their heels and voted to pass a Motion of Desirability on the Bill.
This means that Parliament will proceed to deliberate on the Bill, disregarding the thousands of public comments and submissions received arguing against it. It is clear that the ANC is determined to push forward with their agenda regardless of the human, economic and financial cost involved.
