Potential candidates of Public Protector will be reduced tomorrow
17 August 2016
Committee chairperson Dr Makhosi Khoza says in a statement they will be meeting to reduce the number of potential candidates from the 14 who were shortlisted to a possible five.
The Parliamentary Committee tasked with finding a new Public Protector is to meet tomorrow to narrow down its shortlist, with a final decision possible as early as next week.
All the shortlisted candidates were subjected to gruelling interviews last week that were broadcast live and continued from early morning until the early hours of the following day.
The committee chairperson says they’ll be meeting at Parliament at 1pm tomorrow to reflect on the performance of each candidate during their interviews.
The committee has until the end of the month to report back to the National Assembly.
