The SOS Coalition presented a detailed Bill containing all its proposals at the oral hearings. The main presentation was supplemented by presentations from a number of Coalition partners. The MMP looked more closely at the nomination process; FXI highlighted issues surrounding the SABC’s Articles of Association and its impact on the independence of the SABC and the IPO detailed the impact of the ongoing SABC crisis on content issues. These presentations were well received. The Coalition’s proposal was considered one of the few that dealt directly with the Committee’s concerns. MPs called for a more formal relationship with the Campaign saying they believed we had significant information and experience to share.
