Johannesburg - Election events are set to take place in different parts of the country on Wednesday, with Gauteng in particular a hot bed of political activity.

Pretoria will see President Jacob Zuma speaking at the opening of the National Elections Results Operations Centre while in Johannesburg two panel discussions are expected to take place.

The first has parties addressing the business community on their plans for the economy, with Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele expected to take part.

The other, hosted by youth organisation Inkulufreeheid, will see a panel debate between political parties.

The panel is expected to include ANC provincial secretary David Makhura, EFF Gauteng premier candidate Dali Mpofu and DA premier candidate Mmusi Maimane.

Elsewhere in Johannesburg, Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille is expected to campaign in Johannesburg, visiting Alexandra, Orange Farm and Ennerdale, while Congress of the People president Mosiuoa Lekota will be briefing media on Cope members who defected to the ANC among other matters.

Beyond Gauteng, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa will be in Rustenburg, North West, assessing the state of readiness for the elections.

In KwaZulu-Natal, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe campaigns in Vryheid, while in the Northern Cape, African National Congress deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa campaigns in Dikgatlong, Windsorton, Mataleng and Barkly West.

The general elections will take place on 7 May.
