“BELA BILL”: Call to extend time for written comments

The parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Basic Education's public participation process for the Basic Education Laws Amendment Bill (generally referred to as the BELA Bill) ended on Wednesday.

The FF Plus submitted more than five hundred comments from interested parties, but is requesting more time for written submissions to be made.

Based on a past decision, holding public hearings in all nine provinces is the next step. Chances are that many people with an interest in the matter will only become aware of it then.

Public hearings are limited in terms of time and space, and so 'n real need for making written submissions could develop.

That is why it is important to allow written comments to be submitted for as long as the public participation process is still ongoing.
