South Africa: Political party poll-watchers


Political party poll-watcher training

Together with the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC), EISA produced and published a training manual for political party poll-watchers on their roles and functions as well as materials on understanding the electoral process. A 'train the trainer' approach was used to enable political parties to train poll-watchers within their own party. Training was conducted jointly with the IEC and was attended by 49 participants from 23 South African political parties ahead of and in preparation for the 2014 South African elections.
