Committee OK with protector rules

2012-02-28 22:34
Parliament - National Assembly justice and constitutional development committee chairperson Luwellyn Landers has welcomed Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's willingness to consult Parliament.

Madonsela on Tuesday appeared before the committee to present the draft public protector rules developed in terms of the Public Protector Act.

The presentation was meant to solicit Parliament's inputs on the rules.

Madonsela told the committee the rules would determine the process and procedure for lodging complaints with the protector, including timeframes for the resolution thereof.

The rules created uniformity, simplified and clarified, expedited, and ensured the integrity of the process.

They would assist the lodging of complaints and compliance with remedial action, she said.

The rules would also help educate the public about the mandate and role of the public protector and how it could be accessed.

The meeting agreed Madonsela would work with her team to incorporate the inputs and come back to the committee for further engagements on the revised draft rules.

Landers reiterated that Madonsela did not need the permission of the committee to have the rules, but she had expressed her need for the committee's blessings.
