Cape Town – Applications and nominations for a candidate to replace Public Protector Thuli Madonsela are officially open.

Nominations can be submitted until June 24, the ad hoc committee tasked with finding a new public protector said on Sunday.

Nominations should include a motivation letter, as well as the CV of the prospective candidate. Applications would have to include the same information. 

The advert has been published on Parliament’s website, complete with requirements of the job

Earlier this week, committee members stressed the need for public participation in the process.

Make CVs public

Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema, called for CVs to be made public once submitted.

A list of applications/nominations received would be published in order to allow members of the public to comment on the suitability of candidates, the advert states.

On Wednesday, committee chairperson, Makhosi Khoza, assured MPs the process to replace Madonsela would be transparent and there would be no undercover dealings.

The best candidate would get the job, she stressed at a meeting to outline the committee’s work.

Madonsela’s term ends in October, and Parliament has tasked the ad hoc committee with nominating a replacement by August 31. 

Candidates will be shortlisted in July, and interviews held in August after the local government elections on August 3.
