Discussion
The Chairperson urged Members to do thorough planning regarding the shortlisting of members for the Western Cape Liquor Authority (WCLA) Board. The Committee needed to submit recommendations to the Department because the new term of the board starts in March 2021.

Mr Bosman said that the criteria and the procedural process were in place for the interview of new board members. He suggested that the board should give the Committee an indication of expertise it needs so that it is easy for the Committee to know what to look for when shortlisting.

Mr Kama stated that the Committee needed to be careful that the board does not have an influence on the candidates to be appointed.

The Chairperson indicated that he would write to the board to get specific details on the matter of expertise and would suggest timelines in order to better equip the Committee. He said he would write to Parliament or the Chief Whip to get a suitable date so that the new candidates could be interviewed virtually. The new process would be done just like the previous one when candidates were interviewed.

Mr Kama suggested that the questions to be asked to the new candidates should be amended because some of the candidates might have access to them, while keeping in mind the Committee knows what it wants.

Mr Bosman reminded the Committee that it has not yet received the report on sexual harassment from the Department.

The procedural officer said he would check with the Department and submit details to the Committee.

The Chairperson assured the Committee the date and venue for the interviews would be secured and candidates would be advised how the process would be conducted. He asked Members to make suggestions about carrying out the activities of the Committee for the 2021 year.

The meeting was adjourned.
