Report of the Portfolio Committee on Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities on the filling of vacancies for the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) Board
The Committee Secretary took Members through the draft report.
The Portfolio Committee adopted the report.
The Chairperson explained that the adopted report would be sent to both Houses in Parliament. The National Assembly must adopt the report before the NCOP could do so. If the report was to be adopted in both Houses, it would then be sent to the President for the appointment of the seven NYDA board members.
The Chairperson emphasised the severe situation which young people in the country faced and urged the seven appointees to get started working as soon as they were appointed
Committee minutes dated 8 July 2021
The minutes were adopted.
The Committee Secretary rectified the Chairperson’s earlier explanation on the sequence of the adoption of the reports and clarified that the NCOP and the National Assembly would each have their own dates on when the report would be adopted. So the adoption of the report in the NCOP was not dependant on the adoption of the report in the National Assembly.
The meeting was adjourned.
