Parliament Under Press Over CGE Nominations
Pressure is mounting on Parliament to reconsider the selection of commissioners for the Commission for Gender Equality (CGE).
The Democratic Alliance says it will write to the speaker of Parliament, Max Sisulu, to request that the ad hoc committee tasked with filling positions on the commission reconvene and reconsider its nomination of Janine Hicks and Ndileka Loyilane as commissioners.
The move follows a report in the City Press, based on concerns raised by acting chairperson of the CGE, Teboho Maitse, in a letter written to Sisulu, deputy speaker Nomaindia Mfeketo and chairperson of the ad hoc committee, Ruth Bhengu.
