The DA said the committee has not sat since the start of the 5th Parliament and that it has a backlog of about 60 petitions. 

DA MP of in the NCOP George Michalakis said the DA has written to the chairperson of the Select Committee, requesting him to schedule an urgent meeting for this week, to discuss the committee program and to receive a briefing on petitions referred to the committee.  No reply to this letter has yet been received.

“The ANC within the NCOP continues to obstruct a vital channel through which the Executive can, and should, be held accountable to Parliament and the people Michalakis added.
