Court Cases Unlikely to Affect Election Date – IEC

The Independent Electoral Commission says the upcoming national and provincial elections are unlikely to be delayed by the outcome of a Constitutional Court hearing on the right of South Africans living overseas to vote.

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says the upcoming national and provincial elections are unlikely to be delayed by the outcome of a Constitutional Court hearing on the right of South Africans living overseas to vote.

IEC commissioner Fanie van der Merwe, told Parliament’s home affairs portfolio that the five court cases brought by South Africans living overseas, who are seeking the right to vote in the coming elections, cannot result in the postponement of the elections.

Earlier, IEC chief executive officer, Pansy Tlakula, told MPs that she could not anticipate how the Constitutional Court, which had agreed to consolidate the five cases and rule on them at a sitting on March 4 and 6, will judge the matter.
