Report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Nomination of Persons to fill vacancies on the Commission on Gender Equality, dated 18 September 2006:
The Ad Hoc Committee on Nomination of Persons to fill vacancies on the Commission on Gender Equality, was appointed by the House on 2 November 2005 to make nominations to the House in order to enable it to recommend to the President, persons to fill vacancies on the Commission on Gender Equality in terms of section 3(2) of the Commission on Gender Equality Act (Act No 39 of 1996), read with section 193 of the Constitution. The committee was to report to the House by no later than 15 February 2006.
On the 17th February 2006, the House extended the committee’s deadline to the 22nd March 2006 in order to accommodate the Local Government elections. The committee’s deadline was further extended by House resolution on the 23rd March 2006 to the 12th May 2006. The committee reported on 11 May 2006 and asked the House to extend the deadline by which it must complete its task. These last extensions allowed time for the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development to re-advertise invitations for the public to nominate suitable candidates for consideration by the committee.
The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development received nominations and curricula vitae in response to the Minister’s invitation to the public to nominate suitable candidates, and submitted those to the National Assembly during August 2006, for the committee to consider.
