About Steve Swart

Mr Swart is an African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) Member, originally from Fish Hoek, Cape Town.

Whilst at Parliament, he obtained his B.Econ (Hons) degree through University of the Western Cape.

One of the longest-serving Members on the Portfolio Committee on Justice and Constitutional Development, he also served on the Joint Constitutional Review Committee, the Standing Committee on Finance and the Portfolio Committees on Home Affairs, Transport, and Environmental Affairs and Tourism. Mr Swart was one of the drafters of the Western Cape Provincial Constitution, and was one of the attorneys representing Parliament (then sitting as the Constitutional Assembly) during the certification proceedings in the Constitutional Court for the Final Constitution.
