The Electoral Commission wishes to advise media houses that applications for media office space at the national Results Operations Centre (ROC) are now open. The national ROC will be at the Gallagher Convention Centre, 19 Richards Drive, Midrand in Johannesburg. 
Offices will be available, on a first come first served basis, for media representatives who will be working from the national ROC for the duration of the election week, that is, from Friday, 24 May 2024 until the announcement of results. Media office space will include the following: 

  • 9m² office available from the launch of the ROC (usually one week before election day) until the announcement of the final results. 
  • Partitioning, door with lock, two electrical power points, table, and two chairs. 
  • A network point with a computer to access results. 
  • Any additional requirements, such as ADSL/data and external voice lines, are for the media’s own cost. 

Media representatives interested in office space should indicate their interest and broadcasting technical requirements by emailing Karen Knibbs on as soon as possible but not later than 10 May 2024.
