MVC has started a nationwide campaign to monitor the appointment process of new IEC Commissioners. There are three vacancies that need to be filled this year. This is due to the end of the second term of office of one Commissioner, Mr Terry Tselane (Vice-Chairperson) and the end of the first term of office of two Commissioners, Judge Thami Makhanya and Rev Bongani Finca. The campaign seeks to raise awareness of the appointment process and to encourage the public to participate in it. Free and fair elections are dependent on who manages them. Therefore, as the search for new Commissioners takes off it is critical that we fully engage in it.
MVC has produced an infographic that sheds light on the appointment process, why it is important and how to get involved. Click here to view the infographic
