Section 1 of the South African Constitution presents the fundamental premises of the Constitution and sets out a vision of the type of society that the Constitution seeks to attain. To make the decision and not to provide adequate reasons is tantamount to exercising the power, but not abiding by the legal and constitutional constraints attendant upon the exercise of the power. Wessels n 24 above. The accumulated pressure of South Africa's political crisis, right-wing resistance, economic concerns, the changing political situation in Eastern Europe, and the international community led De Klerk to the inescapable conclusion that clinging to power would only lead to a bloody conflict.

These entities can be general in nature, for example, the comparison of two countries, or more specific in nature, comparing two different systems of government. It is only if these institutions function adequately that the required balance envisaged in the Constitution can be achieved.
