Prior to 1994, South Africa followed the Westminster system, and parliament was the highest authority in the Republic. In 1994 the interim constitution and in 1997 the final constitution came into effect. This marked a new era for South African constitutional law and practice, inducing a radical departure from the system of parliamentary sovereignty. The constitution became the supreme law in the country with all organs of state, including parliament, being subject to it.
