Local Government Elections 2016

Aug 10 2016

South Africa’s Local Government Elections took place on 3 August 2016. The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) manages the National and Local Government Elections in South Africa and declares the results of those elections. “We are very excited as an organisation. We ran a smooth operation, and had some challenges here and there but all in all – I think we managed to run a very good operation,” said Terry Tselane, IEC Deputy Chairperson.

“The 2016 local government elections showed the world that democracy is thriving in South Africa”, President Jacob Zuma commented.

AfriGIS congratulates the IEC on a well-run election.
