South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said that the country’s general elections will be held on May 8. Ramaphosa reported it during SONA.
Cyril Ramaphosa has reminded all the country residents who are eligible to vote but have not yet registered as voters, that it can be done before the date of the election will be officially announced.
“This is an opportunity for our people to exercise their hard-won right to determine the direction of this country. I have engaged with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) and also with the premiers of all provinces, and intend to proclaim the 8th of May 2019 as the date of the election,” Ramaphosa said.
Earlier, it has been reported that this year there were 80% of new voters under the age of 30.
