OverviewThe mission of the Free State Provincial Legislature is to be a modern institution of democracy that promotes good governance and a culture of human rights through public participation, lawmaking and oversight that is vigilant, dynamic, proactive and responsive.
The Legislature's strategic goals are: transformative lawmaking that contributes to the attainment of rights enshrined in the Constitution; enhancement of the quality of oversight and accountability of the performance of provincial organs of state and the mechanisms for their accountability; building an activist legislature by proactively maximising public education and participation, the timeous handling of petitions, and transparency in its processes; building an effective administration; improved support to political representatives by increasing the capacity of Members of the Legislature, as well as allocating resources to political parties through constituent, research and political party grants in an effort to promote practices of democracy; and the pursuit of fundamental social transformation and nation-building, gaining momentum with initiatives by the Speaker to establish women and children programmes.
