In the 1980s, he served as Deputy Minister in the National Party Cabinet of then President PW Botha. Mr Landers was one of several Labour Party members of Parliament to join the African National Congress (ANC) in September 1993, shortly before the April 1994 general election. In 1994, he was elected as an ANC member to the National Assembly. He was chosen as a delegate to the negotiating council that settled the final Constitution and presented it to the Constitutional Court. He has served continuously in Parliament since 1994, and is one of the few remaining -Class of -94- founding members of the democratic Parliament still serving. Throughout his time in Parliament, he served on various parliamentary committees, including the Joint Standing Committee on Intelligence, Portfolio Committee on Justice and Constitutional Development, National Assembly Rules Committee, the Joint Rules Committee and ad hoc committees.
