Cape Town - Speaker of National Assembly Thandi Modise has on Tuesday urged parliamentarians to always display the highest levels of integrity.
Speaking during the budget vote debate for the national legislature, Modise said MPs should, among things, disclose their financial interests.
She also said there should be a review of the Code of Ethical Conduct and Disclosure of Members' Interests in order to strengthen the ethical standards to which MPs should adhere to and also address the drafting irregularities in the code.
"The turn-around time of complaint handling and investigations in respect of allegations of breaches of the Code of Ethics must receive attention."
Modise said the staffing in the Office of the Registrar of Members' Interests has been identified for priority.
