Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma is considering designating three new members of the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), says the Presidency.

The Presidency on Friday said the new members will fill the three vacancies caused by the President’s decision to replace members that he had previously designated to the JSC.

“According to section 178(1)(i) of the Constitution, the Judicial Service Commission, amongst others, consists of four members designated by the President, as head of the national executive, after consulting with leaders of parties represented in the National Assembly,” said the Presidency.

The three new members that the President is considering to designate to the JSC are Advocate Thandi Norman SC, Sifiso Msomi and Advocate Thabani Masuku.

The President has written to the leaders of political parties represented in the National Assembly to provide their inputs on his intention to designate the three new members of the JSC. -
