ANC stalwart Ben Turok wants South Africans to understand how parliament works.

In a column in Business Day, he said: “We need to promote an understanding of how our parliament really works and how the ruling party has managed it since 1994. Some of the distortions that crept in will have to be corrected to ensure accountability and that the system works democratically.”
