“According to section 135(2) of the Constitution, members shall be elected for a 3-year term and are eligible for re-appointment. However, the Constitution does not impose any limitations on the number of terms, which leaves open the possibility of unlimited tenure. In order to promote institutional independence, the SCA encourages the term of office to be limited to one re-appointment.

The SCA encourages the HRADC to advocate for amendments to its enabling law to provide for such a limit on the term of office.”
