The Mpumalanga Provincial Legislature was established in 1994 in terms of the Constitution of South Africa. Consequently, it has the constitutional mandate of lawmaking, oversight of the Executive, and facilitation of public involvement and participation. As an elected representative body, it has 30 members who are elected for a five-year period from the political parties that contested a provincial election and won seats, which are allocated in terms of proportional representation. However, as determined in the Constitution, 11 members become Members of the Executive Council (MEC), headed by the Premier. The Speaker is the Executive Authority of the Legislature and the Secretary to the Legislature is the Accounting Officer.

In addition to the constitutional mandate, its vision is to be 'a people-centred African world Legislature' and its mission is to 'effectively and efficiently hold the executive and other state organs accountable by means of intensified oversight, enhanced public education and participation, and lawmaking; and to ensure improved service delivery by adhering to the Batho Pele principles supported by administrative excellence and good governance'.

The Legislature has also adopted seven strategic outcome-orientated goals and several strategic objectives to ensure that it is able to achieve its vision and mission, and also fulfil its constitutional mandate. The Mpumalanga Provincial Legislature is an important institution in the province. As the voice of the people, it remains the bedrock of representative democracy in the province.
