Abstract

It is now familiar that under Thabo Mbeki the democratic project experienced several major reversals. While holding on to the formal constitutional architecture, the time of Thabo Mbeki is said to have been associated with the hollowing-out of parliament, the demobilization of civil-society and even the erosion of the separation of powers.
