With the South African elections exactly one month away, staying
informed and up to date with the latest political news is paramount to every
citizen who intends making their mark on this year’s ballot paper.

For the sixth time since the dawn of democracy in 1994, South
Africans have an opportunity to exercise their fundamental democratic right to
decide the country’s future. In a nation embattled by socioeconomic strife and a
fierce political playing field, access to objective information and expert
analysis remains the greatest weapon forged to defeat ignorance and propaganda.

The South African elections 2019

This year’s election is touted as being the most vital in
the country’s democratic history. Almost 27 million registered voters have the
opportunity to make their mark, quite literally, on the nation’s fate.  

With the political campaign trail heating up at every turn,
the electorate is caught in a socio-political tug of war, one which speaks to intrinsic
values regarding the very makeup of South Africa as we know it. With so much at
stake, it’s no surprise that political parties are pulling out all the stops.

Here at TheSouthAfrican.com, we’re committed to providing free and fair coverage of all political happenings during the runup to the 2019 elections. As such, we’ve launched a platform solely dedicated to The South African Elections – one which covers the most important aspects of our democratic electoral system, including:

  • A comprehensive list of all 48 parties contesting the upcoming elections
  • Information on political party leaders who hold seats in the National Assembly
  • Previous election results, analysis and comparisons dating back to 1994
  • Understanding how South Africa’s government and electoral system operates

We’ve got you covered

For all the latest news relating to the upcoming elections and the political parties involved, you needn’t look anywhere else. We’ll also be brining you the latest statements and statistics from the Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) alongside informative voter surveys conducted by Ipsos, the Institute for Race Relations (IRR), Afrobarometer and others.

On voting day, Wednesday 8 May, we’ll be providing a blow-by-blow account, with journalists on the ground at IEC stations and results centres. It’s likely that results will start trickling in from 9 May; we’ll have you covered with a live tally leader board which tracks the numbers and latest developments of both the National and Provincial outcomes.
