Meet the election watchdog

  • 0

Terry Tselane is the executive chairman of the Institute of Election Management Services in Africa (IEMSA), which will act as an election watchdog in the coming South African elections.

Tselane is a veteran of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). He established the IEC in Gauteng and in 2011 was appointed vice-chairperson of the IEC, an office he held for seven years.

Freek Robinson asked him to explain the role and the powers of an election watchdog. Also: Who watches the watchdog, and what would happen if the watchdog and the ruling party were to disagree on the outcome of the election?

Tselane then explained, in simple terms, what voters can expect when they enter the election booths, since the inclusion of independent candidates will mean completing more ballot papers than in previous elections.
