Parliament has learned with profound sadness about the passing of Mr James Selfe, former Member of Parliament, and former Federal Council Chairperson of the Democratic Alliance (DA).
 
The Presiding Officers of Parliament, led by the Acting Speaker of the National Assembly, Mr Lechesa Tsenoli, and the Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces, Mr Amos Masondo, extend their heartfelt condolences to Mr Selfe’s family, friends, and colleagues in the Democratic Alliance. Mr Selfe was a respected figure whose dedication to public service was evident throughout his distinguished career, which spanned several decades.
 
Mr Selfe's nearly three-decade tenure in Parliament was characterised by an unwavering commitment to vibrant political debate, robust parliamentary oversight, and accountability. His articulate and candid contributions in House debates and committee meetings, particularly within the Portfolio Committee on Justice and Correctional Services, enhanced the work of Parliament and significantly contributed to its robust legislative oversight and accountability.
 
His legacy will continue to shape the principles and practices of parliamentary democracy for years to come.
 
May his soul rest in peace.
