Draft Rules Adopted for Removal of South African Public Protector

The National Assembly's rules committee has adopted draft rules for the removal of the head of a Chapter 9 institution, such as the Public Protector. According to the Constitution, there are three grounds for the removal of the head of a Chapter 9 institution - incapacity, incompetence and misconduct. The draft rules must still be adopted by the National Assembly.
