The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) will on Monday begin with a round of interviews to fill 11 vacant positions within the superior courts.
Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng is expected to chair the interviews‚ which are being held at his offices in Midrand.
Among those on the panel of interviewers is Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema and Thoko Didiza‚ who was the ANC’s mayoral candidate.
First on the list to face the panel is Judge Raymond Zondo‚ who is currently serving as a Constitutional Court judge.
Zondo is being interviewed with the hopes of succeeding retired Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke.
Bess Nkabinde is currently acting in the position. Her 12-year term comes to an end on December 31‚ making her ineligible for the post.
President Jacob Zuma has recommended Zondo for the post.
Zondo’s appointment to the Constitutional Court five years ago was met with reports that he had always been Zuma’s favoured candidate for the post. Zondo rejected the claims.
