Carter, Ms D to ask the President of the Republic

Would he consider making a policy directive that all deliberative meetings of all organs of government commence with the collective reading of the Preamble of the Constitution, 1996?


Government welcomes all suggestions on ways to popularise the Constitution and to advance public awareness about its values and intent.

The suggestion to read the Preamble of the Constitution at the beginning of all deliberative meetings of government will be considered alongside various other proposals, taking into account issues of practicability and impact.
