Portfolio & Thematic Committies

Portfolio Committees.

These are Committees designated according to government portfolios to examine the expenditure, administration and policy of government departments and other matters falling under their jurisdictions as Parliament may by resolution determine. Most of the work of Parliament is carried out by and generated in Portfolio Committees. Portfolio Committees are expected to table at least one report per session in Parliament covering their activities. Portfolio Committees perform both a pre-audit and post-audit function.

Currently, the House of Assembly has 19 Portfolio Committees which are fully operational. The Committees, their Committee Chairpersons and Committee Clerks are as follows:-

Thematic Committees

 

These are introduced during the Seventh Parliament and are provided for in the Senate Standing Orders. They were conceived with the reintroduction of a bicameral Parliament with the view to eradicating duplication of efforts between Committees of both Houses. Thematic Committees are mandated to examine government policies that fall under or relate to the designated theme or themes, or any other matters falling under their jurisdiction as the Standing Rules and Orders Committee may determine.
