I’m happy with the quality of vetting, I think it’s very high. I will be exceedingly surprised if all those who [were] nominated are approved because I have some problem areas but I will not make official statements now

Some of them should not be given the mandate. So far, I have seen two people who have been nominated and if I was on the appointments committee, I will vote against them
