Promotion of Access to Information Amendment Bill

8477 have provided input, so far. Have your say below.

The amendment proposes to allow information on the private funding of political parties and independent candidates to be recorded, preserved and made publicly available. However, there are a few concerns – see summary.

Important to note; By using DearSA’s policy-shaping interface you ensure an accurate record is held by civil society (so government cannot dispute participation facts or figures) which forms a solid foundation for a legal case should the necessity arise. This is a legally protected public policy-shaping process mandated in the SA Constitution. It is not a petition. Your input is immediately sent to government and must, by law, be individually acknowledged and considered. Had this been a petition, all input would be grouped as a single submission.
