Cape Town - Parliament's Communications Committee on Tuesday selected Marcia Socikwa and Nomonde Gongxeka as its preferred candidates for a vacant Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa) councillor position.

In terms of the Icasa Amendment Act, the committee has to submit one-and-a-half the number of names for the number of vacant councillor positions to Communications Minister Roy Padayachie.

He will then make his selection and revert to the committee which will either confirm or reject it, at which point the process would start again.

Since only one seat is open, this means that two names have to be submitted.

Communications Committee chairperson Eric Kholwane said: "All the political parties - the ANC, DA and IFP - agreed. Cope had an objection, but then withdrew it before they were asked to. So it means the shortlist was a unanimous decision," he said.

Socikwa holds a doctorate in telecommunications and has been an Icasa councillor for four years.

Gongxeka is currently employed by the SABC as group public affairs manager. She has more than 14 years' experience in the broadcasting sector, and most recently served with the Media Development and Diversity Agency.
