Youth urged to participate in upcoming local government elections

President urges eligible, especially first-time voters, to ensure they are registered to participate in the elections.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has set October 27 as the date on which the sixth democratic local government elections will be held.

“Voters will on the day elect leadership and public representatives at metropolitan, district and local level,” said Ramaphosa in a statement issued by Tyrone Seale, acting spokesperson to the president.
“The minister of cooperative governance and traditional affairs will follow the necessary legal process to proclaim the date and undertake other requirements.”

The president urges eligible – and especially first-time voters – to ensure they are registered to participate in the elections, which provide the basis for development and service delivery closest to where citizens live.
