The public hearing gives the public an opportunity to express their views on the Electoral Amendment Bill.   Stakeholders, political parties, interested groups, organisations and all members of the public are welcome to attend the hearing, at which they will be given the opportunity to make representations.  These will be considered by the portfolio committee in compiling a report to be tabled in the National Assembly.  The Bill may come up in the National Assembly as early as Tuesday 13th May, so there is no time to be lost.

If you want to make oral representations at the hearing, signify this to the committee clerk before the hearing, if possible, so that she can notify the chairperson to call on you.  An oral representation is more effective if followed up in writing.  If you are providing a written copy, it is advisable to take as many copies as possible with you for circulation at the hearing.
