Constitutional Review Document 2016

A Suggested Review of Sub-Section (7) of Section 25 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa

A. Introduction and Executive Summary

The Constitution, which South Africa adopted nineteen years ago, has served the Country well. It has been a reliable guarantor of parliamentary democracy, and fundamental rights which all of us cherish.

It has also inspired the spread of democratic consciousness in our society, empowering all, the socio-economically underprivileged classes and women and making our system of governance more participatory and progressive. While keeping the basic structure and salient features of the Constitution inviolate, it has, however become necessary to examine the experience of the past nineteen years to better achieve the ideals enshrined in the Constitution.
