Premier Helen Zille says that claims by the ANC that there are plans to introduce provincial taxes are a lie.

Zille was talking about the proposed amendments to the provincial constitution.

These include amendments to the definition of a “Money Bill”.

The legislation is currently being considered by Provincial Parliament’s Standing Committee on Constitutional Matters.

Zille’s spokesperson, Ewald Botha, says this bill has nothing to do with additional taxes.

Botha says the opposition party seems be to be ill-informed when it comes to government matters.
