The 2019 South African National and Provincial Elections will be held on 8 May 2019.

You can also search through the adverts to see the messages and campaigns of the political parties.

Access to information in elections in Africa

The Political Party Advert Repository (Padre) is a South African first, and aims to ensure and increase access to information in elections in South Africa, in line with the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights' Guidelines On Access To Information And Elections In Africa.

Padre is an initiative of the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) supported by Media Monitoring Africa (MMA), aimed at supporting free and fair elections by ensuring access to information during the elections period.

You can read more about the initiative and about the IEC and the MMA on the about page.
