The National Assembly has passed the Electricity Regulation Amendment Bill, with 234 votes in favour, including the African National Congress (ANC) and the Democratic Alliance (DA), and 25 votes against.

The bill makes provision for the establishment of a state-owned Transmission System Operator, that will amongst other things create an open-market platform to enable competitive trading of electricity.

Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy, Gwede Mantashe, says the bill will radically transform the structure of the electricity sector for future generations.
