In the statement, the DSA said that “this is a major change and it should bring convenience and increased participation, and it should assist in securing the integrity of the election process, and in delivering accurate results within the quickest time”. The logistics of the electoral process will be overseen by the national Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). According to the statement, election committees have been established and an auditing firm has been appointed to monitor the process.

Nomination forms are available on ClickUP, the DSA reception, and IEC offices which can be found on all external campuses. “Voter education” will be provided as the process will be completely electronic. The DSA implored students to participate in the election to “enhance the democracy on campus and make sure that we have strong and capable student leaders”.

More information will be available soon via Perdeby, TuksFM and various SRC social media accounts.
