CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY

The nation's fifth democratic elections have undoubtedly added to our legacy of regular and peaceful elections."

Millions of South Africans exercised their democratic right to vote on 7 May in the country’s fifth general elections.

"Today's successful election is indeed a testament to the country's active citizenry, which is crucial for any vibrant democracy," Phumla Williams, acting CEO of the Government Communication and Information System, said in a statement.

The Independent Electoral Commission printed and distributed over 62 million ballot papers – including national and provincial ballot papers – for the elections, which saw the highest number of registered voters (25,3 million) in South Africa's history.

On 30 April 2014, in terms of the Electoral Amendment Act, 2013, registered South Africans abroad also got their opportunity to cast their votes.
