In an acknowledgment of democratic reforms under way in South Africa, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to end its anti-apartheid policy, which directed tens of millions of dollars away from companies doing business in the country.

In a gesture of support for Nelson Mandela, the Los Angeles City Council came to work early Friday and decided to place before voters a proposal that would toughen the city's anti-apartheid measures by banning nearly all city contracts with firms that do business with South Africa. The council voted unanimously for the proposed change at a special 8:30 a.m. meeting, ordering the city attorney's office to draft a ballot measure that is expected to go before the voters in November.

A measure that would broaden Los Angeles's anti-apartheid policy by giving lawmakers the power to deny contracts of $25,000 or more to companies with ties to South Africa has been placed on the November ballot. The City Council voted 12-0 Wednesday to place the proposal, an amendment to the City Charter, before the voters. The city's current anti-apartheid policy, enacted in 1986, only applies to contracts worth between $500 and $25,000 and excludes contracts that are competitively bid.
