However, this will not preclude any person using any of the South African official languages during the public hearings, to be held in Parliament, to input to the bills. The advertisement to invite people from respective communities will be specific to the languages spoken in their constituency. The advertisement will also be forwarded to the Parliamentary Democracy Offices in all nine provinces in their respective languages. These offices will also be used as liaison points.
