The Northern Cape Provincial Legislature (NCPL) can be recognised as an arena in which citizens’ needs meet government action and where citizens needs mainly begin to receive increasing attention. Today, the Northern Cape Provincial Legislature is recognised as a critical institution for democratic development in the Northern Cape.
An effective Legislature is strongly correlated with the existence of a viable democracy and an open society. The Northern Cape Provincial Legislature on account of its Members and legislative functions can empower ordinary citizens to participate in the development of policies that shape their lives. Due to its oversight role the NCPL is fundamental in establishing the rule of law, protecting human rights, overseeing transparent governance processes, and ensuring compliance with national and provincial legislation in the Northern Cape.
These functions, though universally recognised are not always naturally or effectively implemented without sufficient human and financial resources. With its budget the NCPL is able to develop programmes geared at its own development. These programmes are aimed at strengthening representatives, transparency, accountability and effective government.
