In the afternoon, the JSC will seek to recommend a judge to the Electoral Court. There are two candidates: current incumbent Willem Wepener and Johannesburg High Court Judge Colin Lamont.
The Constitutional Court candidates to be interviewed on Tuesday are Supreme Court of Appeal justices Ronnie Bosielo, Stevan Majiedt and Malcolm Wallis, and Gauteng High Court judge Jody Kollapen.
