This article focuses on the controversy over politician Daniel Malan's attempt to overrule, the South African Supreme Court, which declared, that his attempt to disenfranchise Cape Colony's mulattos is in violation of the country's organic law. The conflict between the clerical-Nationalist majority and the more moderate Union party and its sympathizers among the non-white population of South Africa has been brewing for a long time. Malan has announced that he will seek to abrogate the judiciary's constitutional review powers by placing them in the hands of a parliamentary committee.
