The Minister of Justice, Jeff Radebe, has extended the deadline for public comments and input on the Muslim Marriages Bill to the 31st of May.
The deadline has been extended in recognition of the need to allow for maximum participation in the process of consultation and engagement.
Department spokesperson Tlali Tlali says they trust that everybody concerned will exploit the opportunity and make meaningful submissions.
He says that since its publication the Bill has elicited more than five thousand submissions.
