The National Assembly has 400 members. The number of seats that a party has in the Assembly is in proportion to the number of voters that voted for it in the elections.
The National Council of Provinces (NCOP), one of the two Houses of Parliament, came into effect in 1997. The NCOP is constitutionally mandated to ensure that provincial interests are taken into account in the national sphere of government.
The two houses of Parliament, the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces, conduct their work in plenary sessions (where Members of a house meet together in one group), in joint sittings (where Members of both houses meet as one group), and in Committees (smaller groups of Members).
Interventions by the National Council of Provinces

The Deputy President of the Republic of South Africa, Mr Kgalema “MKhuluwa” Motlanthe, will be remembered by South Africans for the period he served as the country’s President for less than a year between September 2008 and May 2009. The manner in which he answered questions from Members of Parliament, especially from the opposition, and the way he dealt with the issues of HIV/Aids and Zimbabwe, were noteworthy for their humility.
