Difficult for South Africans to vote abroad

By unknown | Mar 31, 2009 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

How are South Africans living overseas going to vote in the general elections?

In Australia the IEC will only open the high commission in Canberra . This means that thousands of South Africans in Perth and elsewhere will have difficulty voting.

South Africans in the US will have to travel to Washington DC or New York . And London will have to handle the influx of up to 40000 voters in the UK.

Any political party interested in democracy would argue for a simpler system to put the Constitutional Court's ruling into practice.
