oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - The constitutional law implications of the Buthelezi Commission Report

Volume 15, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0010-4051



The author expressed some ideas and comments on the processes of constitutional amendment, constitution-making and other important constitutional proposals which have appeared since the release of the Buthelezi Commission Report, namely the reports of the President's Council. The author acknowledged the positive aspects of the President's Councils reports, as well as their weaknesses from a constitutional law perspective. The President's Council and the government were trying to achieve a new constitutional dispensation for the whole country. It was necessary, however, to realise the basic nature of a constitution and the requirements for its making, and to discuss issues surrounding the President's Council and also the report of the Buthelezi Commission.
