KwaZulu-Natal’s Prime Minister Sihle Zikalala has called for a review of South Africa’s constitutional democracy and has called for a move towards parliamentary democracy, where decisions taken by parliament are final.
Zikalala was addressing Human Rights Day in Ixopo District on the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal.
Zikalala has raised concerns that some of the decisions taken by the government are being reviewed and reversed by the courts.
“While we all respect and uphold the independence of the judiciary, we need to rethink the problems that the current constitutional democratic system poses to us. This system puts one state ecosystem above another. It’s time for us to discuss this, it’s time for us to debate it openly, we’re making policies to govern, but if the courts are to reverse that policy, they mean they’re undermining the power of other institutions.
