Johannesburg - The Constitutional Court will rule on Thursday whether to grant an extension to allow Parliament to rectify a defect in the Road Accident Fund (RAF) Act.
In the matter of Mvumvu and others versus the minister of transport, the court previously found certain sections of the act were unconstitutional.
The matter relates to provisions of the RAF Act, which put a cap on the amount those involved in car crashes could claim in damages.
The court allowed a period of 18 months to give parliament time to cure the defect in the act.
In August, however, the transport minister and the RAF applied for more time to carry this out.
This was because Parliament would be unable to complete the process, as changes had to be made to the amendments after consultations.
As such, the applicants requested an additional three months to carry out the court's previous order. The application has not been opposed.
