Interviews for the nominated candidates who are to be appointed as Commissioners at the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) were held on 26-27 June 2018. The Panel was comprised of Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, Public Protector Advocate Mkhwebane, Deputy Chairperson of the Commission for Gender Equality, Ms Mathebula and Commissioner Makwetla from the South African Human Rights Commission.
