The Constitutional Court has dismissed the Independent Electoral Commission’s (IEC) application for a postponement of the local government elections.
The apex court has directed the IEC to conduct a voter registration weekend.
The Constitutional Court has also ordered Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, to determine a date for local government polls between 27 October and 1 November.
In July, former deputy chief justice Dikgang Moseneke completed his report advising the IEC not to hold elections this year due to COVID-19, saying they would not be free and fair.
