ISI presents to National Assembly Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs: Electoral Amendment Bill

On 2 March 2022, the Inclusive Society Institute presented its proposed electoral model to the National Assembly Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs during the Public Hearings on the Electoral Amendment Bill.


The institute appointed an expert panel, convened by Mr. Roelf Meyer, to undertake the work and mandated the panel to design an electoral model that will meaningfully give effect to the Constitutional Court judgement that declared the current electoral act unconstitutional, respect the boundaries set out in the Constitution, retain proportionality as a basis for representation in that it best promotes inclusivity, and which enhances representativity, accountability, and transparency.


The outcome, which was a new electoral model, was presented to the National Assembly Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs by Mr Roelf Meyer, Prof William Gumede and the institutes' CEO, Mr Daryl Swanepoel.
