IEC confirms addresses of over 21 000 South Africans ahead of 2019 elections

Election date

IEC says it is waiting for President Ramaphosa to confirm election date earmarked to take place between 7 May and 5 August 2019.

The South African Independent Electoral Commission says it is waiting for President Cyril Ramaphosa to confirm the date of next years' election, currently earmarked to take place between 7 May and 5 August 2019.

This is the window period in which elections should take place constitutionally, according to Masego Sheburi, Independent Electoral Commissions deputy CEO.

In preparation, he says the IEC has improved the voters' roll in terms of the number of people with addresses.

At the time of the ConCourt ruling, there were about 32% of people with addresses on the voters roll and now Sheburi says that number has improved to 82%.

This means that over 21 billion South Africans who appear on the voters' roll have an address.

Masego Sheburi, Independent Electoral Commissions deputy CEO

Sheburi says it has asked the ConCourt for additional time to deal with this matter and it was granted. He says the extension will help the IEC to put measures in place to further verify addresses for the elections.

When a person appears at the voting station without an address they will be asked to first provide an address and if the address is within the same province, they will be allowed to vote.

We also have register weekend on the 26 and 27 of January where we will open all 23 000 voting stations and this will enable people to go register and update the voters roll as well as proving us with the correct address.

Masego Sheburi, Independent Electoral Commissions deputy CEO

Once the voters' roll is updated, Sheburi says it will be given to political parties to peruse and submit any objections so as to avoid dealing with legal actions after the election date is announced.

To hear the rest of the discussion with IEC's Masego Sheburi, listen below:
