ANC to monitor performance of MPs
The ruling party says it’s come up with an intensive five-year programme of action.
CAPE TOWN - The ANC in National Assembly on Monday said it would closely monitor the performance of its Members of Parliament (MPs).
The ruling party concluded a two-day lekgotla where government and parliamentary strategies were refined.
The ANC's parliamentary caucus says it's come up with an intensive five-year programme of action.
The party says the plan will help strengthen Parliament's oversight role around key election focus areas, like land reform and education.
ANC Chief Whip Stone Sizani says they'll continuously assess and closely monitor the performance of all the party's 282 MPs in both houses of Parliament.
Another area of focus is prioritising the passing of the Public Administration and Management Bill.
This will make it illegal for any civil servant to do business with the state.
The bill also compels MPs to declare family members who have state contracts.
