Keep yourself informed by using the media. In order to be able to influence decisions taken in Parliament and the provincial legislatures, you must keep yourself aware of what is going on in these institutions and in the broader society.
Keep in touch by:
- Talking to people
- Reading newspapers
- Listening to news broadcasts on radio and TV
- Finding out about the work programme of Parliament.
From time to time, certain committee hearings are advertised in newspapers. Another way of keeping informed about Parliament is by attending report back meetings held by members of Parliament (MPs).
