The IEC says it will approach the Electoral Court to postpone a by-election scheduled…

The IEC says it will approach the Electoral Court to postpone a by-election scheduled for this Wednesday in ward nine in the Witzenberg Municipality of the Western Cape. In a statement, the IEC says the decision follows complaints from political parties that they had not received reasonable access to potential voters for campaigning purposes. Ward nine is situated in a deep rural area on top of the Great Winterhoek mountains near Porterville. The IEC says it will ask the electoral court for time to resolve the complaints and ensure sufficient opportunity for all contestants to campaign. Last week the EFF opened a case against a farmer in the ward for allegedly preventing them from getting access to his farm where two voting stations are situated. The ward was previously represented by the ANC and became vacant as a result of the resignation of the councillor.
