Friday is the second and the last day of the public hearings taking place at the Johannesburg City Hall in Gauteng on South Africa’s policies since 1994.
This is in line with the decision that was taken by parliament in January to appoint a panel to assess the effectiveness of the legislation that has been passed by Parliament and the Provincial Legislatures since 1994.
The public hearings are part of the review process that is intended at reviewing the country’s economic situation to accelerate change.
Head of the Panel on the Assessment of Key Legislation, Kgalema Motlanthe, says the mandate of the panel is to assess whether legislation has served as an en abler to improve the quality of lives or is an impediment.
He says they have asked for written submissions from different stakeholders.
The panel has also held public hearings in other cities with Johannesburg being the 5th stop.
