Parly extends deadline for SABC board nominations

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Pretoria - The deadline for the public to nominate four SABC Board members has been extended, Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Communications said on Wednesday.

The deadline, which was originally scheduled for 15 November, has been moved to 6 December, 4pm.

This comes after it received a letter from SOS: Support Public Broadcast, requesting an extension.

In October, the committee called on the public to nominate individuals to fill four non-executive vacancies of the SABC board following resignations by the board's Deputy Chairperson Felleng Sekha and board members Barbara Masekela, David Niddrie and Makgatho Mello from the Communications Department.
