Abstract

The primary overall objective of this study is to inform and guide the Commission in its plans, policies and practices in order to assist the Commission to implement its mandate optimally. The specific objectives of the study are to evaluate voting behaviour in South Africa and to determine people's interest in, and perceptions of, the forthcoming local government elections, to assess the performance of municipal government, to examine the electoral and political involvement of specific groups such as women, youth and persons with disabilities and, finally, to evaluate public opinion of the IEC and measure people's trust in the Commission.
