Home affairs to remain open on Election Day

2014-05-06 05:30
Johannesburg - The home affairs department has extended its office hours in the lead-up to and on Election Day, it said on Monday.

The department would open all of its offices across the country on Wednesday from 07:00 to 21:00 in line with voting hours to assist citizens with the voting process, spokesperson Lunga Ngqengelele said in a statement.

It had already extended its office hours for Monday and Tuesday, from 07:30 to 21:30.

"Home affairs takes this opportunity to remind members of the public that President Jacob Zuma has declared Wednesday... as a national holiday to allow citizens more time to vote," said Ngqengelele.

"All home affairs officials who will be working on Wednesday... have been afforded an opportunity alongside all other essential services to cast special votes across the country."

This would enable them to serve the citizens to the best of their ability on voting day.
