Candidates shortlisted for the position of commissioner of the Electoral Commission SA (IEC) will be interviewed in Johannesburg on Thursday, the chief justice’s office said.

A panel chaired by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng and comprising the chairman of the SA Human Rights Commission, chairwoman of the Commission for Gender Equality, and the public protector, would hold the interviews, spokeswoman Lulama Luti said in a statement on Wednesday.
