The party further says they will be reporting the Minister to the Public Protector for breaching the Executive Ethics Act and Judge Pillay for misconduct and bias to the Judicial Conduct Committee.
Yesterday, EFF Leader Julius Malema accused one of the Constitutional Court judge candidates of being nothing but a political activist.
