Cape Town - The Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) has announced the end to Chief Electoral Officer Mosotho Moepya's term at the commission.

The IEC on Saturday announced "with regret" that Moepya's contract expired on Friday, and he has chosen not to renew it.

"Mr Moepya has been with the IEC for more than 18 years and served with distinction as CEO for the past 5 years," the IEC said.

"The Commission wishes Mr Moepya well in his future endeavours and would like to express the gratitude for his many years of service."

Deputy chief electoral officer Sy Mamabolo will serve as acting CEO while the process to appoint a new CEO gets underway.

Moepya was appointed CEO in 2012, taking over from Pansy Tlakula, who became IEC chairperson.

He has been with the IEC since 1998. He was appointed deputy CEO in 2001, and has also represented the commission abroad.
