image   Legislative AnalysisParliament, which consists of the Senate and the House of Assembly, is the supreme law-making body in Zimbabwe. Parliament alone has full or plenary power to make whatever laws it considers necessary for the Government of Zimbabwe. In making these laws, Parliament is restricted only by the Constitution, in particular by the Declaration of Rights which is contained in Chapter III of the Constitution. This great law-making power carries with it a great responsibility: to ensure that the laws passed by Parliament are good laws which will be effective and will lead to good governance. The guidelines in this booklet are meant to assist Members of Parliament, committee clerks, parliamentary researchers, the public and civic society in analysing proposed laws and Bills to ensure that, if passed, they will be good laws.
