Cape Town - Members of the public have less than a month to make written submissions on a bill that provides for disclosure of private funding of political parties and independent candidates.
This comes a few months before the cut-off date set down for the National Assembly by the Constitutional Court. Concourt wants Parliament to amend the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA).
In June last year, judgment by the apex court reiterated a ruling by the Western Cape High Court that declared the PAIA invalid.
It found it inconsistent with the Constitution by failing to provide records, preservation and reasonable disclosure of information on private funding of political parties and independent candidates.
The court had ordered Parliament to make the amendments within 18 months.
