Resolution

'Add Nomination' & 'Add Successor' link on Nomination & Successor portlets is independent of porlet write permission under Employee Data. if a given role has Succession Planning permission then will always have access to these Add link for their target population on the portlet. This is the expected behavior.

There is no way to remove 'Add' link from these portlets as long as a user/role has Succession Planning Permission that means there is no separate permission for doing nomination via Nomination or Successor portlet other than Succession Planning Permission.
