The 2024 elections coincide with South Africa's celebration of 30 years of freedom and democracy.

“Beyond the fulfilment of our constitutional obligation, these upcoming elections are also a celebration of our democratic journey and a determination of the future that we all desire. I call on all South Africans to exercise their democratic right to vote and for those who will be campaigning to do so peacefully, within the full observance of the law. We also urge unregistered voters to use the online registration platform to register”, said President Ramaphosa.

In a statement on Tuesday evening, the president said the proclamation to declare the date will be issued in due course. This means that South Africans who are eligible to vote still have time to register online until Ramaphosa proclaims the date.
