Nominations for judges to close

Nominations to fill various positions in the judiciary close on

February 11, the Judicial Service Commission said today.

There were two vacancies at the Supreme Court of Appeal, one at the

Competition Appeal Court, three at the KwaZulu-Natal High Court, one at the

Northern Cape High Court, six at the high courts in Johannesburg and Pretoria

and three at the Western Cape High Court.

There were also two vacancies at the Electoral Court.

These candidates did not need to be judges, but should be either

advocates or attorneys, the JSC said in a statement.

Nominations had to be accompanied by the candidate’s written

consent, a detailed curriculum vitae, the standard questionnaire completed and

signed by the candidate and copies of at least three written judgments by the

candidates.

Interviews with shortlisted candidates would be conducted in

public. The questionnaire had to be submitted with a “clearance certificate”

from the candidate’s professional body regarding his or her professional status

with the body, or suitability for appointment to the bench.

It would also include the nature of any disciplinary proceedings

completed or pending in respect of the relevant candidate.

The deadline for nominations is February 11 at 4pm.?
