Cape Town - The ANC has recommended seven of its MPs to sit on an ad hoc committee tasked with looking into the public protector's report on the procurement of the IEC's head office, ANC Chief Whip Stone Sizani announced on Wednesday.

Earlier this month, Parliament announced it would establish the committee to "consider" Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's findings on the procurement of the Independent Electoral Commission's (IEC) headquarters in Centurion.

Madonsela recommended that Parliament consider taking action against IEC chair Pansy Tlakula for her "grossly irregular" role in the procurement of the building.

Madonsela found improper conduct and maladministration on Tlakula's part, and a conflict of interest involving a co-director, with whom she was accused of being romantically involved.

The man, Thaba Mufamadi, had a 20% stake in Abland, which was awarded the R320m contract to lease the building.

Mufamadi is an MP and chairs Parliament's finance portfolio committee.

The seven ANC MPs recommended for the ad hoc committee are:

- Labour portfolio committee chief whip Buti Manamela;

- Water and environmental affairs portfolio committee chair Johnny de Lange;

- Public service and administration portfolio committee chair Joyce Moloi-Moropa;

- Science and technology portfolio committee whip Lindelwa Dunjwa;

- Justice portfolio committee chair Luwellyn Landers;

- Home affairs portfolio committee chair Maggie Maunye; and

- Home affairs portfolio committee whip Andre Gaum.

Landers has been recommended as the ad hoc committee chairperson.
