EFF to submit election list

2014-03-12 16:22
Pretoria - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members clad in red T-shirts and berets stood outside the Electoral Commission of SA's (IEC) offices on Wednesday as the party prepared to submit its candidate lists.

The group of about 40 stood around idly waiting in the car park near two vehicles with EFF banners draped over them.

The party was expected to hand over its candidate lists and deposit cheque to contest the 7 May general elections to the IEC at 13:00.

The deadline for submissions is 17:00 on Wednesday.

The deposit for parties contesting the National Assembly is R200 000 and R45 000 per province that they contest.

The EFF took President Jacob Zuma, Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor, and the IEC to court over the amount.

On Tuesday, the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria dismissed the EFF's application for an interdict relating to the payment of the deposit to the IEC.
