The DA asked the ANC early in the week to give the position to it. The DA gave the ANC the position of Scopa chair in the Western Cape legislature.
The ANC chairs the Scopa committees in the provinces it governs.
In the National Assembly the committee has been chaired by Themba Godi, who leads the African People’s Convention.
However, Godi, who chaired Scopa for 14 years after he took it from the National Party, did not make it back to Parliament after his party failed to get a seat.
