South Africa’s Department of Basic Education says it will not oppose an urgent court application challenging its decision to stop the practice of publishing matric results on media platforms. This, News24 reports, after the department said it had received representations from an array of organisations and people as well as an urgent court application by civil-society organisation, Afriforum on the matter. The department said it was guided by the need to comply with all the legal obligations, but in the final analysis, the Constitution commanded it to act in the best interest of pupils.
