JOHANNESBURG - The Presidency on Monday said it will not publicly ask the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) to reopen the nominations process for Constitutional Court judges.
This after outgoing judge Zakeria ‘Zac’ Mohammed Yacoob called on President Jacob Zuma to reject the all-male list given to him.
The five people due to be interviewed by the JSC over the next two weeks are all men.
Presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj said Zuma has worked hard to ensure gender parity.
The JSC’s Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza said there is nothing they can do.
“If you only get nominations that come from males, there is nothing you can do about that.”
This means the Constitutional Court is likely to have just two females judges in the foreseeable future.
