Towards the Polls: 29 May 2024

View descriptionShare

As South Africa gears up for its seventh democratic national election in 2024, anticipation looms large, marking this event as a pivotal moment in the country's political history. With the Electoral Commission (IEC) grappling with significant legislative changes, such as the introduction of three ballot papers—a first for South Africa—this election promises to be fiercely contested. Independent candidates now have the opportunity to vie for office individually, a departure from previous norms. Additionally, voters will encounter a new voting process, requiring the use of three instead of two ballot papers, a change not witnessed since 1994. As we approach the election date, it's crucial to delve into the preparations undertaken by the IEC for the voting period and to remain mindful of the factors shaping this momentous event. We would also like to take a look at the anticipated changes in the country's political dynamics and the potential trajectory of South Africa's future governance. Manager of Electoral Operations at the IEC James Aphane along with Elections Analyst and Founder of the Elections Management Consulting Agency of Africa Lulu White join Nhlanhla Sehume for the conversation.
