Cape Town – Members of the public have nine days to lodge complaints about the applicants and nominees for the appointment of Public Protector.

The Public Protector ad hoc committee released the list of possible candidates on Tuesday, with 59 up for consideration to fill Thuli Madonsela's shoes.

The names include that of deputy public protector Advocate Kevin Malunga, ANC MP Loyiso Mpumlwana, EFF chairperson Advocate Dali Mpofu, Judge Sirajudien Desai and Professor Pierre de Vos.

Committee chairperson Dr Makhosi Khoza on Tuesday urged members of the public and civil society to lodge their complaints in time.

"It should also be borne in mind that objections against a nominee or applicant will not be automatically used to eliminate a particular candidate. The committee will follow due process in validating such objections," she said.

The committee appealed to anyone making comments and objections to disclose their identity in order to authenticate their submissions.

The list of names has been published on Parliament's website, with CVs attached.

Members of the public should scrutinise the names and CVs and send their comments or objections to Vhonani Ramaano on by Friday, July 8.
