Election lists to be made public

2014-03-26 12:14

Johannesburg - Lists of candidates for the 7 May general election will be available for public inspection from Friday, the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) said.

"The comprehensive list including all supporting documentation will be available for inspection at the IEC head office in Centurion during office hours on Friday 28 March, Monday 31 March, and Tuesday April 1," said IEC spokesperson Kate Bapela in a statement.

A total of 29 parties will contest the general elections.

"This is four fewer than the 33 parties which had provisionally indicated their intention to contest the national election... but it remains the highest number of parties to contest a democratic national election in South Africa's history," she said.

Bapela said four political parties were removed from the ballot paper after they failed to pay the required election deposit.

The parties removed from the lists were Africa Unite Party, Dagga Party, Lekgotla for Democracy Advancement, and the SA Progressive Civil Organisation.
