Political parties were among the most divided stakeholders after the report was released.  The DA’s Siviwe Gwarube said the party rejected its findings and the party was considering its next steps.“The DA does not support the postponement of the local government elections. We have said from the start it is possible to hold elections within Covid-19 protocols. The DA will study the Moseneke Report in light of the constitutional implications thereof and communicate our next steps in due course,” she said. 

The IFP and the EFF accepted Moseneke’s findings and called for an emergency convening of the National Assembly to pass an urgent motion to amend the constitution to allow for the postponement of elections.  It was not immediately clear when the voter registration weekend would take place.   headtopics.com

“The new dates for the voter registration weekend will be announced in due course. In the meantime, the commission reminds all eligible voters that the online registration facility launched recently will continue to provide a safe, convenient and easy way to register as a voter and to update registration details,” said the commission.  

Mashinini said the IEC would immediately consult with co-operative government and traditional affairs minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma as the authority responsible for the proclamation of the elections. TimesLIVE Read more: Times LIVE »
