Law-making

Any Bill may be introduced in the National Assembly. A Bill passed by the National Assembly must be referred to the National Council of Provinces for consideration.

A Bill affecting the provinces may be introduced in the NCOP. After the council passes it, it must be referred to the National Assembly.

A Bill concerning money must be introduced in the assembly and referred to the NCOP for consideration and approval after being passed.
