Core fubctions

The core mandate of the Eastern Cape Provincial legislature (ECPL) is facilitating law making; ensuring public participaton in the legislative processes; and exercising oversight over Executive and other organs of the state. ECPL is also responsible for furthering cooperative governance between provincial and local legislative institutions.

The oversight function and the opening oof the doors of the Legislature to the public continue to be important areas of the Legislature’s activities. Bills brought before the Legislature by departments are scrutinized before they are taled in the HOuse for debate. In this process, the stakeholder’s views are taken into account-either by invitingthem to the Legislature or by holding meetings. These inputs are also prepared in respect of national legislation through the National Council of Provinces (NCOP). The Legislature also ensures that departments spend voted funds in the prescribed manner through the oversight function provided by portfolio comittees.
