Eleven of the Bills have been gazetted as Acts
These eleven Acts were all gazetted and came into force by the end of 2018 [see Table of Acts below for details].
Mines and Minerals Amendment Bill This was the twelfth Bill passed. It was not published as an Act because the President refused to assent to it, and after the election it was sent back to the new Ninth Parliament for reconsideration in the light of the President’s reservations. The Bill did not, however, come up for reconsideration during the remainder of 2018.
