SA government applauds overseas voting

The South African - The no.1 Newspaper for South Africans living abroad:

SA government applauds overseas voting
Elections 2009

The South African government has acknowledged the importance of the expatriate vote, calling the voting which took place abroad last Wednesday a “significant” part of the election process.

16 240 South Africans living abroad applied for and were granted permission for a special vote, giving South Africans living abroad the right to vote for the first time since 1994.

The voting, which took place last Wednesday at 124 foreign missions worldwide, was hailed by South Africans and officials as a success and an important step in South African democracy.
