President Jacob Zuma has revealed that he will be taking the remedial action in the Public Protector's State of Capture report on review.
The report, compiled by former Public Protector Advocate Thuli Madonsela, was released earlier this month after several attempts to block it.
The Presidency says Zuma will explain his reasons deciding to challenge the report in his application for review, which is currently being drafted.
The state capture report linked Zuma, Cabinet ministers and parastatals such as Eskom to dodge dealings connected to the controversial Gupta family.
The report recommended that Zuma appoint a judicial commission of inquiry into state capture within 30 days of its release.
It advised that the proposed commission must be headed by a judge solely selected by the Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.
