THE Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs notes and welcomes the announcement that President Jacob Zuma has acceded to the National Assembly’s request to re-initiate the process of nominations, short-listing and interviewing of candidates to fill the vacancy in the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC).

The vacancy arose as a result of the resignation of Ms Raenette Taljaard as a commissioner.
