South Africa's Constitution requires that Parliament and the Legislatures provide a forum for the public to participate in all due processes. This is known as public participation.
Public participation can be described as a deliberate process where Government uses various methods to get all the relevant stakeholders, these can be interested or affected citizens, civil society organisations, and government actors, involved in the policy or legislation-making process.
Public Participation in government is very important and necessary. It ensures that you are involved in the decisions taken by your representatives that will impact your life.
