Project Description

By June 2022, Parliament must amend SA’s electoral law to allow independent candidates to contest national and provincial elections, as ordered by the Constitutional Court. Current proposals suggest introducing some constituency voting into our proportional representations system.

Which party would benefit and would politicians become more accountable to voters?

Will independent candidates have a real chance to succeed?
