The Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Committee established to nominate a person for the appointment of Public Protector, Dr Makhosi Khoza, said the Committee intends interviewing all candidates in one day.
“The rationale behind this is to ensure that candidates do not have unfair advantage over others, as these interviews will be broadcast live,” said Dr Khoza.
EWN has produced a profile on each of the candidates.
JOHANNESBURG - Fourteen candidates have been shortlisted by Members of Parliament to interview for the position of Public Protector next month. Thuli Madonsela's term ends in October and by law she is not eligible for reappointment. A special parliamentary committee tasked with finding her successor pored over the CVs of 56 candidates on Wednesday before emerging with a shortlist.
