Members of the sub-committee on rules agreed that senior parliamentary officials and legal services must also look at what constitutes a removal.
The DA had tabled a motion that Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane must be removed from office because of several scathing judgments against her.
Chairperson of the sub-committee Doris Dlakude, who is also the ANC deputy chief whip, said they were not making a decision on Mkhwebane.
“We are dealing with the crafting of rules. We are not a decision-making body,” said Dlakude.
