The Acting Chairperson informed members that the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) would be presenting a report to the Science and Technology Portfolio Committee on 19 September and that this Committee was invited to attend.

The Acting Chairperson further reported that it was still to be ascertained whether the Department was ready to do a presentation to the committee on the amending legislation for postal services.

Deliberations on ICASA Council nominations.
The chairperson asked the various parties once again to submit their lists of proposed candidates.

Ms D Smuts (DA) commented that the ANC had indicated that three of their candidates were non negotiable. She asked if the nomination for Ms M Matlala still remained non-negotiable; if not, she would suggest that Prof J van Rooyen replace Ms Matlala. She noted that she still considered it problematic that two of the names on the shortlist were Departmental officials.

The Acting Chairperson commented that there were five names common to all the lists.

Mr R Pieterse (ANC) commented that the ANC was not obliged to inform the Committee why it had not supported candidates suggested by other parties.

Adv P Swart (DA) suggested that the Committee need not consider the five common names, but should concentrate only on the names where there was no consensus.

Mr R Nkuna

Prof J Van Rooyen
Ms M Mohlala
Ms M Matlala
Ms B Ntombela

The Acting Chairperson stated that the names would now be submitted to the Minister, who would then choose five councillors to be appointed.
