Van Rooyen urges Tlokwe residents to update details on voters' roll

2016-07-07 07:15

Johannesburg - Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Des van Rooyen on Wednesday evening encouraged residents of the Tlokwe district to confirm and update their missing address details this weekend.

"We urge all registered voters in the Tlokwe area to come out on 9 July and Sunday 10 July from 08:00 - 17:00 to provide missing address details or to correct their address details on the voters' roll," Van Rooyen, who is also chairperson of the inter-ministerial committee on elections, said.

The decision follows a ruling by the Constitutional Court that the elections are to continue on August 3 using the current voters' roll, with Tlokwe as an exception.

"The court was very clear that with regards to Tlokwe, that the Electoral Commission should still ensure the implementation of the November 2015 Kham judgment and the subsequent ruling by the Electoral Court," spokesperson for the Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Legadima Leso, said in a statement.

Leso added that members of communities in the area should be aware that this weekend will not provide a chance for new voter registrations, but simply a chance for registered voters to check and update their details on the roll.
