Principles of South African Local Government Law
Author(s): Professor Bernard Bekink
The absence of a dedicated reference work on the new legislation affecting local government prompted Professor Bekink to compile this codified and systematic work for the benefit of students, as well as legal advisors and officials, in the field of local government. Under the new South African Constitution, a plethora of new legislation on local government has been enacted in the past five years, drastically changing the manner in which this third sphere of government operates.
Includes all the relevant legislation. Fully indexed and including a comprehensive bibliography.
Written in plain language, this reference book discusses and explains the new legal dispensation under the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa 1996 as it applies to local government. Divided into 21 chapters, it covers all institutional aspects concerning the third sphere of government.
