The seven were seen outside Speaker Baleka Mbete's office on Thursday morning.
Six will serve as African National Congress (ANC) MPs, and Cachalia as a DA MP.
They were accompanied by the chief whips of both parties, Jackson Mthembu and John Steenhuisen and DA deputy chief whip Mike Waters.
The six ANC MPs are Jabulane Dube, Rachel Adams, Mbulelo Nkonzo, Simanga Mbuyane, Lerato Theko and Terrence Mpanza.
