A democratic country requires accountable public administration. Chapter 9 of the Constitution has created a number of institutions that seek to ensure accountable public administration, among which is the Office of the Public Protector. In terms of s 181(2) - (5) of the Constitution, these institutions are accountable to parliament and are meant to be independent and impartial when carrying out their duties. Thus, other state organs are instructed to assist these institutions to perform their functions and should not interfere with their functioning.
