Still no indication who will chair ANC's oversight committees

EWN's Gaye Davis says while the alliance secretariat met on Tuesday morning, talks may be continuing behind closed doors.

Talks may well be continuing behind closed doors as the African National Congress (ANC) has yet to decide on who will chair its oversight committees, says Eyewitness News parliamentary correspondent Gaye Davis.

The alliance secretariat met on Tuesday morning following allegations that ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule was planning to install former president Jacob Zuma’s loyalists as parliamentary portfolio committee chairs.

The appointment has been delayed by mass resignations of former ministers on the ANC’s benches in the National Assembly.

Davis has more on the story.

I think that we are now in a situation where we still don't know who these committee chairs are going to be.

Gaye Davis, Parliamentary correspondent - EWN

I would have expected that any newly agreed list of names would go before the NEC but the ANC was to have had a special NEC meeting in Cape Town this afternoon but that has been cancelled.

Gaye Davis, Parliamentary correspondent - EWN

The swearing-in of new MPs replacing those members who resigned has now been postponed until tomorrow.

Davis understands that a caucus meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday morning but there is no indication whether the names will be revealed to members of the ANC.

I think it is safe to say at this stage that this list is possibly not yet finalised and that there are more talks going on behind the scenes in order to get that fully thrashed out.
