Pretoria - All senior management vacancies in The Presidency are to be filled in terms of the Public Service Regulations.

This is according to a statement released by the Presidency on Sunday following media reports regarding the appointment of key management positions in the department.

The Presidency assured that the reports remained "just speculation and do not reflect the thinking of The Presidency on the matter".

"Posts will be advertised and all prospective candidates will be invited to apply. All applications will be considered on merit and no posts are reserved for particular individuals," said the Presidency.

The department further appealed to the public and the media to refrain from speculating on the appointments and allow the due process to take its course.

"Appointments will be announced once the process has been completed," it said.
