Cape Town - Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille has requested a meeting with President Jacob Zuma to consult in person about his nomination of Judge Mogoeng Mogoeng as chief justice.

"Given the weight of the matter, the need for meaningful consultation; and the expected length of our written submissions, I suggest that we meet in person on Monday the 5th of September," Zille wrote in a letter to Zuma.

The DA last week asked for an extension of the August 24 deadline for comment from political parties on the nomination, to allow it to give its input after Mogoeng's interview with the Judicial Service Commission on Saturday.

Zille said Zuma had agreed.

His nomination of Mogoeng to replace retired chief justice Sandile Ngcobo has caused a stir, with critics citing the nominee's lack of Constitutional Court experience and controversial rulings.

The DA has however reserved comment so far and urged the JSC to interview him.

"It is such a crucial issue that we want to make sure we have a proper dialogue," Zille's spokesperson Priya Reddy said on Monday of the request for a face-to-face meeting with the president.
