The Committee interviewed the candidates in a closed session and the Procedural Officer drafted a report on the outcomes of the interview sessions.
In an open session, the Committee considered and adopted the Draft Report without amendments. The report indicated that the Committee – having interviewed all the candidates – recommended all four candidates to the Minister ranked in order of the highest preference
The Chairperson announced that the Committee was going to conduct interviews of candidates to fill the vacancies on the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board; the interviews were going to be closed as per the resolution from the previous Committee meeting in order to ensure fairness among the interviewees. She asked the Procedural Officer to close off the meeting to the public.
When the meeting was opened to the public again, the Chairperson read out the Draft Report on recommendations made by the Committee on candidates who could fill the vacant positions on the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board. The report indicated that the Committee – having interviewed all the candidates – recommended all four candidates to the Minister ranked in order of the highest preference. The Committee had resolved to attach its ‘score sheets’ along with the report. The report was open for consideration.
Mr A Van der Westhuizen (DA), said he thought the ‘score sheets’ were not going to be sent along with the report. He had made some personal notes on his ‘score sheets’ and did not wish for those notes to be sent with the report.
The Chairperson said the ‘score sheets’ would not be in the report, but would be extras that the Committee sent to the Minister and that Members would be allowed to send their ‘score sheets’ without the personal notes if they so wished.
The Chairperson, requested a mover for the adoption of the Draft Report without amendments.
Mr Van der Westhuizen moved for the adoption.
Ms M Nkondlo (ANC) seconded the adoption.
The Committee considered and adopted its minutes of 6 August, 11 August and 1 September 2021.
Mr Van der Westhuizen commented that as a future practice, the Committee should indicate what amendments had been made in any of its minutes, instead of just stating ‘the minutes were adopted with one amendment’, whereas that particular amendment was not referenced.
The Chairperson agreed that it was a good idea and the Committee would implement it in the future for ease of referencing.
The Chairperson gave feedback that the UIF had not sent the Committee the respective information by the due date that had been set. They indicated that the information would be sent in as soon as possible as it was still being processed at Head Office. She asked if it would be okay with the Committee if the Procedural Officer started drafting her report on the UIF in the mean time.
The Committee agreed that it would all in order if the Procedural Officer got started on her report.
The Chairperson said this was the last meeting for the Committee for the quarter, ahead of the constituency period. She wished all the Members a warm and safe constituency period.
The Meeting was adjourned.
