Voting in the National and Provincial Elections
The National and Provincial elections take place every five years. The outcome of the elections determines which political party will govern the country and how many seats each political party will have in Parliament. Similarly, these elections also determine which of the political parties will govern each of the nine provinces.
This year, registered voters are encouraged to vote in the fifth general elections on Wednesday, 7 May 2014.
