2. Progress On 11 August 2011, in Premier: Limpopo Province v Speaker: Limpopo Provincial Legislature and Others (CCT 94/10), the Constitutional Court held that provincial legislatures do not have authority to pass legislation with respect to their financial management. The Court found that a provincial legislature is competent to legislate on its own financial management only if this matter has been expressly assigned to it by national legislation. Consequently, the Court declared the Financial Management of the Limpopo Provincial Legislature Bill unconstitutional. Subsequently, on 22 March 2012, the Court also found various provincial Acts dealing with financial management of provincial legislatures unconstitutional. The declarations of invalidity of these Acts are suspended for a period of 18 months from the date of judgment. The parties to the matter, including Parliament, must file a report with the Court indicating what steps have been taken to remedy the defect by 9 September 2013. As a result, Parliament is required to pass legislation dealing with the financial management of provincial legislatures.
