Parliament is hoping to boost its scrutiny of the presidency.

According to Parliament the UK has been chosen because of the similarities that exist between the South African system and the Westminster parliamentary system.
The development comes as Parliament is considering setting up a committee that will have oversight on aspects of the presidency that are not yet supervised by existing structures. It’s in the wake of the recommendations of the State Capture Commission that had found parliament failed in holding the executive to account.
The multiparty delegation led by Cedric Frolick, is expected to with political representatives, procedural experts and members from relevant institutions.
