The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Community Safety and Liaison said it would wait for Premier Zweli Mkhize to decide whether a commission of inquiry should be established to probe the deaths of six people during a fitness test for prospective traffic officers.
More than 200 people collapsed during a provincial traffic department recruitment fitness test at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg last Friday.
One more person also committed suicide.
About 15 600 applicants were hoping to qualify for the 90 trainee posts advertised by the department.
Preliminary reports have since revealed the deaths were caused by dehydration.
Department of Community Safety and Liaison spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said the MEC has made plans to approach the premier to look into the preliminary report and consider a commission of inquiry.
A police investigation is underway to determine the possible contributing factors that led to the six deaths and find ways to improve systems moving forward.
Meanwhile, the department has condemned political parties for pointing fingers after the deaths.
This after some party leaders called for provincial transport MEC Willies Mchunu to resign following the incident.
