Abstract:This edited volume looks at the past five elections which were held in South Africa over the course of twenty years through the prism of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). It especially looks at how the commission was established and how it evolved over the course of the years to attain international prominence; without sticking to a mere institutional context but taking into account societal dynamics and individual contributions as well.
