Elections 2024: IEC chairperson says defining feature of elections is independent candidates

# Electoral Commission chairperson, Mosotho Moepya, says the defining feature of the upcoming general elections will be the introduction of independent candidates. Eleven independent candidates will be contesting the 29 May elections. Moepya was part of the South African Council of Churches’ national day of prayer held in Soweto yesterday. He says the IEC has developed a results system, which will be put through several integrity tests to ensure that these elections can never be stolen.
