The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has announced Sy Mamabolo as its new Chief Electoral Officer (CEO).
Mamabolo has been acting CEO at the IEC since March, when Mosotho Moepya's tenure at the IEC ended.
Mamobolo has been Deputy Chief Electoral Officer at the IEC for over 20 years.
Stephen Grootes spoke to him on the Breakfast Show to reflect on his appointment and his expectations in leading the IEC to deliver free and fair elections in 2019.
Elections in 2019 will determine the cost of how we progress as a society so given the enormity of this responsibility, one has to undertake it with a sense of humility.— Sy Mamobolo, ICE Chief Electoral Officer
We have got to sharpen our processes, the conduct of our staff and that we run the process in terms of the prescripts. The greater the scrutiny, I think that is welcome. We will be transparent.— Sy Mamobolo, ICE Chief Electoral Officer
