FMF NEWSLETTER 9 FEBRUARY  2017 

 
EDITORIAL  

Dear friend of the FMF

Three most-overlooked provisions of the Constitution:
This week’s Feature Article describes three provisions in the Constitution which, according to the author, do not receive from the courts the level of respect that should be accorded to them. The primary purpose of a Constitution is to place limitations on the powers of government but the built-in constraints are only effective to the extent that the courts strictly apply the limitations.

FEATURE article  

Three most-overlooked provisions of the Constitution – MARTIN VAN STADEN

The Constitution exists in the abstract to most people. They know there is a document, somewhere, with a list of principles and values which protects them from… something, but what it actually says and how it is set out, is not known to most.

This is perfectly fine in a constitutional democracy – not everyone needs to be a lawyer, and the courts exist for this specific purpose; to ensure rights are protected.
