Four parties don't make deposit deadline

2014-03-25 20:21
Cape Town – The Electoral Commission (IEC) said on Tuesday four of the 33 parties who'd registered for the 7 May elections have not made the deadline for paying their deposits.

The final list of candidates will be announced by 22 April.

The parties which fell by the wayside are the African Unite Party, Iqela Lentsango – Dagga Party, Lekgotla for Democracy Advancement and the South African Progressive Civil Organisation.

The IEC said the 29 parties which would take part in the elections, is still the highest number to contest polls in a national election in South Africa. 

Parties were issued with notices from the Electoral Commission last week in respect of around 300 candidates, indicating non-compliance of the requirements to submit candidate lists and pay deposits.

The lists of candidates for each party (national, regional and provincial) will be published for public inspection from 28 March.

The Economic Freedom Fighters launched a failed court bid to reduce the deposits, but managed to make payment in time.
