South Africa’s Independent Election Commission maintains committees to liaise with political parties

Submitted by: National Democratic Institute for International Affairs

South Africa’s Independent Election Commission maintains Party Liaison Committees at the national, provincial and municipal levels for regular consultation and cooperation on electoral matters.  These committees are enshrined in the electoral law (Regulations on Party Liaison Committees, 1998) and members at the various levels can access agendas, meeting minutes and other materials on the Election Commission’s website. In addition, with regard to public consultations, article 59 of the South African Constitution states that the National Assembly must facilitate public involvement in the legislative and other processes of the Assembly and its committees.
