ANC to appeal the decision of the Electoral Court

9 December 2008

The African National Congress (ANC) has decided to appeal the decision of the Electoral Court regarding the ANC registration details of 12 wards in the Cape Town Metro Area.

The ANC will vigorously contest all other bi-elections in the Western Cape.

The ANC is concerned that voters in the Cape Metro are being denied their right to vote for a candidate of their choice based on a technical problem within the IEC.

The ANC candidates were on time at the IEC Provincial Office and had taken cash with it as well as a cheque to register 12 candidates.
