International Day of Parliamentarism in
Days to go:
The International Day of Parliamentarism is celebrated every year on June 30th to commemorate the institutions of parliament and their role in promoting democracy, peace, and sustainability. This day recognizes the crucial work done by parliaments in representing the people, engaging in dialogue and debate, and making laws that reflect the needs and aspirations of their citizens.
South Africa has a unique history with parliamentarism as the country underwent a transformation from an authoritarian apartheid government to a democratic one, with its first democratic elections in 1994. The Parliament of South Africa is responsible for making laws that promote social justice, human rights, and sustainable development. The International Day of Parliamentarism in South Africa serves as a reminder of the essential role parliaments play in promoting democracy, transparency, and accountability. It also reminds us of the importance of robust democratic institutions for maintaining stability and development in society.
In South Africa, this day further supports the country's commitment to advancing the principles of democracy and peaceful coexistence. It provides an opportunity for parliamentarians and other stakeholders to reflect on their role in shaping national policies and programmes that contribute to the country's growth and prosperity. International Day of Parliamentarism is observed annually on June 30th.
