The new Institute for Security Studies (ISS) African Election Watch programme will be providing expert analysis and commentary on the outcomes of the recent South African elections and what to look out for in the coming weeks.
Media are invited to join Gareth Newham, head of the ISS Governance, Crime and Justice Division, and ISS analysts Jonathan Faull and Judith February for an overview of the 2014 national and provincial election results as well as what happens next in terms of Parliamentary procedures. The briefing will take place telephonically at 11h30 on Monday 12 May 2014.
Key discussion points include the rise of the Economic Freedom Fighters, the performance of both the ANC and DA, and voter turnout dynamics. Media and stakeholders are encouraged to ask questions during the briefing and use the information provided in news content.
The ISS African Election Watch programme is designed to track and monitor elections, which can be a source of stability or a source of conflict in Africa.
