Tselane emphasises that anyone wishing to become the IEC commissioner should be able to act with professionalism and integrity.

Interviews for the three IEC commissioners kicked off on Monday with about 26 candidates expected to take the hot seat before a panel which includes of chief justice Mokgoeng Mokgoeng and Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane.

It is understood that the panel received a total of 110 nominations.

Outgoing commissioner Terry Tselane speaks to CapeTalk/702's Clement Manyathela about what is expected of the new commissioners that will be joining the IEC.

He says the first aspect for prospective commissioners is to understand the legal framework in which the Electoral Commission operates.

You need to understand the laws because it is a highly legalistic environment in which we are operating.

Terry Tselane, IEC Commissioner

They should also be able to speak to what is in the legislation. Immediately you try to deviate from what is contained in the legislation then you are most likely going to encounter difficulties.

Terry Tselane, IEC Commissioner

Another aspect is that of being able to act with integrity and professionalism. Once you act with integrity you are able to sleep at night because you know you haven't compromised anything in our systems and you know you will be able to justify any decision you have taken.

Terry Tselane, IEC Commissioner

Tselane says the commissioners operate in highly politicised environment but the key is to be able to resist those pressures and operate with integrity and professionalism.

To hear the rest of the conversation with the outgoing commissioner Terry Tselane, listen below:
