The New Nation Movement is contesting the constitutionality of South Africa’s Electoral Act.
It says the Act is invalid because it doesn’t allow independent candidates to stand in national and provincial elections.
The Western Cape High Court last year dismissed the New Nation Movement’s application to have the Electoral Act declared invalid.
The party then approached the Constitutional Court, but it refused to hear their application for leave to appeal and postponed the matter.
The NNM will get another chance today to argue the merits of their case.
Joining us in studio is Bulelani Mkhohliswa from the New Nation Movement and Professor Daryl Glaser from the Wits School of Political Studies to elaborate on the issue at hand.
