CCS and UKZN School of Social Sciences Seminar What do party lists reveal about political parties contesting the 2019 SA Elections?

Speaker: Lubna Nadvi
Date: Wednesday 24 April 2019
Time: 13:00-14:00
Venue: CCS Seminar Room A726, Level 7, Shepstone, Howard College, UKZN

The lead up to the 2019 national and provincial elections has seen the South African electorate raising several pertinent questions around issues such as; who are the parties contesting the elections this year, how many new parties are there on the ballot and perhaps more importantly, who are the people who constitute the party lists. The people who are chosen by their parties to serve as their representatives are extremely important given that these are the individuals who will be tasked with carrying out the mandate of the party as well as fulfilling the expectations of the electorate who have voted the party into office. Should these individuals not carry out their allocated tasks as is required of them, they would effectively be considered as having failed the party and the voters. The seminar focuses on whether the calibre of individuals that have been chosen by some of the parties to constitute their lists are worthy of being selected, what is their experience in politics and whether they can be considered as effective public servants.
