Meeting report


17 August 1999

Only one nomination for chairperson was made, Thandi Modise (ANC). The nomination was made by her colleague James Ngculu (ANC) and was seconded by Paulos Ramelepa Zondo (ANC). Thandi accepted the position as chairperson and made it clear that the issue of defence is not a social or political issue but vital to South Africa. A vote of confidence and a pledge to work together came from all the opposition parties. Clearly all the parties echoed the same sentiment, to support the initiatives of the committee as an agent of national interest.
The committee will be meeting again this week (at a time still to be decided) to establish the agenda for the coming year. Also to be discussed in this meeting is the distinction between what is to be dealt with by the Defence committee and by the Joint Committee on Defence.
