There’s still time to register for this year’s elections.

The Electoral Commission says it expects the official proclamation of the date to happen some time in February.

It’s only then that the voters’ roll will be closed.

The IEC briefed the media on Tuesday about their final registration weekend.

The data shows that 81 percent of new voters are under 30 years old, and 52 percent are women.

The IEC’s Nomsa Masuku says that overall, registration has gone well.
