Provincial Government Act, 1986
enacted by the Parliament of South Africa
When the Union of South Africa was created from four British colonies by the South Africa Act, 1909, each of the colonies became a province. Most of the colonial governments' powers were transferred to the new Union Government, but those limited powers retained by the provinces were administered by elected provincial councils, executive committees (cabinets) elected by the councils, and Administrators appointed by the State President. This system remained essentially unchanged by the 1961 and 1983 constitutions. In 1986, however, Parliament enacted the Provincial Government Act, 1986, which abolished the provincial councils and gave the State President the power to appoint both the Administrators and the executive committees, essentially placing the provincial governments entirely under the control of the national government. This system, however, only lasted for eight years, as with the end of apartheid in 1994, the four original provinces were dissolved and replaced by nine new provinces with elected legislatures; the act was repealed on 27 April 1994 by the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1993.

This is the text as originally enacted and does not incorporate any amendments. A series of other versions incorporating amendments are also available on Wikisource; the version as amended up to 22 May 1991 is the text of the act as it was immediately before it was repealed.
