Meeting report

The Chairperson reminded Members of the purpose of the meeting, which was to recommend candidates to fill the vacancies in the Commission on Gender Equity and adopt outstanding minutes.  

Appointment to the Commission on Gender Equality
The Committee’s Legal Advisor explained that initially the Commission had two permanent as well as two part-time positions to fill. The two current part-time Commissioners applied to the President to have their positions converted to permanent positions. Ms Mfundi Ndzimande’s application was declined and Ms Pinkie Sobahle’s application was approved. The Committee is expected to recommend who will be fulltime Commissioner as three part-time vacancies are now available. The process to convert part-time Commissioners was procedural and they will be writing to the President about the matter.

Ms P Kekana (ANC) said the appointment of Commissioners by the President was unfair since the Commissioners already had an advantage regardless of the fact that they were part-time employees. She added that the process was a learning curve
