The Democratic MP, Attorney Glynnis Breitenbach, is no longer working to take control of himself as the National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP).
Breytenbach made the announcement in an interview aired in CapeTalk702.
Breytenbach was included in the list of 12 candidates who was shortlisted by a panel assisting President Cyril Ramaphosa with the appointment of a new NDPP.
In the program, "Krima Brown" said that she had already informed the panel of her decision after she held with the district attorney, who believed that the position should be independent of party political influence.
"This is a dream job for me but it's not about every person here, it's about national prosecution," said Breytenbach, who was not immediately available for comment when contacting by News24.
Interviews for the work page expected to begin on Wednesday will be open to media, News24 reported on Tuesday.

The matter was handed over to the court by a right2Know NGO after the Presidency indicated that the interviews would not be open to the media.
In the order of his judgment in the Supreme Court of North Götting in Pretoria, Judge Luo Luo said that the NDPP's office was required to be independent and should be seen as independent.
He said it was a matter of knowing that NDPP's office is suffering from instability.
"The process directed by the president is a major improvement, the president did not give reasons why it should be closed to the public," said Louw.
"The process must be open and transparent, and it is important that security be restored in the party offices."
News24 reported that some legal minds say that under the law, the president should decide on a candidate in consultation with the Cabinet and the prospects of the ANC Cabinet Breytenbach approval were slim.
