Government encourages the exercise of orderly democracy

Oscar Thomas 24 August 2014

Government has noted with grave concern the disruptions which have unfolded in Parliament yesterday and which tantamount   to bring the high institution into disrepute. 

Whilst government encourages a continuous healthy and robust democracy, which includes questioning the executives of the country, it must be exercised in a dignified manner.

Acting GCIS CEO, Phumla Williams said the Parliamentary platform, which is made up of proportional representation through the polls, is for the use of all political representatives and yesterday’s offence actually deprived South Africans from interacting with the President Jacob Zuma through their elected representative.

“Government reminds all citizens that they have recently elected and appointed the public’s preferred candidate.  South Africans enjoy their constitutional right to go to the polls every five years to make their mark and to determine how political parties have put across public issues Williams added.
