CASAC: Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution
The ISI’s Chief Executive Officer, Daryl Swanepoel, and the Convenor of the panel of experts assembled by the institute to consider electoral reform in South Africa, Roelf Meyer, on Wednesday afternoon, 24 March 2021, presented the panel’s proposals for electoral reform to CASAC.
The presentation formed part of the ISI’s campaign to promote electoral reform in South Africa that would give effect to the Constitutional Court’s judgement declaring the current Electoral Act as unconstitutional. The Court granted Parliament two years in which to amend the Electoral Act to grant independent candidates the right to make themselves available for election to the national and provincial legislatures.
