  • MAFIKENG LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE PRESENTS ROLE PLAYERS IN PROVINCIAL GOVERNANCE Facebook Page: Mafikeng leadership committee PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE The legislature of a province, by a resolution adopted with a supporting vote of at least two thirds of its members, may request Parliament to change the name of that province A provincial legislature is bound only by the Constitution and, if it has passed a constitution for its province, also by that constitution, and must act in accordance with, and within the limits of, the Constitution and that provincial constitution
  • PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE A provincial legislature consists of women and men elected as members in terms of an electoral system that- is prescribed by national legislation Before members of a provincial legislature begin to perform their functions in the legislature, they must swear or affirm faithfulness to the Republic and obedience to the Constitution A provincial legislature may not exclude the public, including the media, from a sitting of a committee unless it is reasonable and justifiable to do so in an open and democratic society POWERS AND FUNCTIONS OF PREMIERS The Premier of a province has the powers and functions entrusted to that office by the Constitution and any legislation At its first sitting after its election, and whenever necessary to fill a vacancy, a provincial legislature must elect a woman or a man from among its members to be the Premier of the province. A Premier-elect must assume office within five days of being elected, by swearing or affirming faithfulness to the Republic and obedience to the Constitution
  • POWERS AND FUNCTIONS OF PREMIERS No person may hold office as Premier for more than two terms, but when a person is elected to fill a vacancy in the office of Premier, the period between that election and the next election of a Premier is not regarded as a term. The legislature of a province, by a resolution adopted with a supporting vote of at least two thirds of its members, may remove the Premier from office only on the grounds of - a serious violation of the Constitution or the law; serious misconduct; or inability to perform the functions of office MEC The members of the Executive Council of a province are responsible for the functions of the executive assigned to them by the Premier. Members of the Executive Council of a province are accountable collectively and individually to the legislature for the exercise of their powers and the performance of their functions. Members of the Executive Council of a province must - act in accordance with the Constitution and, if a provincial constitution has been passed for the province, also that constitution; and provide the legislature with full and regular reports concerning matters under their control
  • MEC Members of the Executive Council of a province may not - undertake any other paid work; act in any way that is inconsistent with their office, or expose themselves to any situation involving the risk of a conflict between their official responsibilities and private interests; or use their position or any information entrusted to them, to enrich themselves or improperly benefit any other person MOTIONS OF NO CONFIDENCE If a provincial legislature, by a vote supported by a majority of its members, passes a motion of no confidence in the province's Executive Council excluding the Premier, the Premier must reconstitute the Council. If a provincial legislature, by a vote supported by a majority of its members, passes a motion of no confidence in the Premier, the Premier and the other members of the Executive Council must resign
  • RESPONSIBILITIES – HEAD OF DEPARTMENT AND MEC The MEC is responsible for policy choices and outcomes, while the accounting officer (HOD) implements the policy and achieves the outcomes by taking responsibility for delivering the outputs defined in the departmental budget. The accounting officer prepares the departmental budget (specified in terms of measurable objectives) for the Minister or MEC to approve and present to the legislature for voting. The accounting officer (HOD) is then responsible for implementing and managing the budget. RESPONSIBILITIES – HEAD OF DEPARTMENT AND MEC The Minister or MEC (the executive authority) presents the department’s budget to the legislature, but the accounting officer is responsible for implementing and managing the budget in terms of measurable outputs once it has been adopted. The accounting officer is responsible for achieving the operational plan by promoting commitment to the plan throughout the department and, more fundamentally, by ensuring that all managers accept their financial management responsibilities.
  • MANAGING DEPARTMENTS BY HOD Once the financial year begins, the accounting officer must submit regular monthly management reports to the Minister or MEC and the relevant treasury. These reports must focus on performance against budget and against service delivery improvement programmes, and alert managers when remedial actions are required. The accounting officer is responsible for exercising proper budgetary control MANAGING DEPARTMENTS BY HOD The accounting officer is expected to ensure that incompetent or dishonest departmental officials are subjected to the prescribed disciplinary steps. Should the accounting officer fail in his or her duties, the onus is on the (MEC OR Minister) also known as executive authority to act against the accounting officer. The accounting officer is responsible for the submission of all reports, returns, notices and other information to the relevant legislature, executive authority, the relevant treasury or the Auditor- General
  • MANAGING DEPARTMENTS BY HOD Accounting officers must plan properly before spending or transferring funds or benefits The accounting officer of a department must ensure that no person borrows money on behalf of that department or issues an unauthorised guarantee, security or indemnity. Any transgression must result in disciplinary proceedings IN CLOSING If you have any questions about this presentation or you want to discuss or add more to the presentation Contact Mafikeng leadership Committee on its face book page and drop a message on the wall.
