Johannesburg - The Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal will hold three by-elections on Wednesday, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) said.

More than 22 000 people had registered to cast their votes in the three wards, the IEC said in a statement on Tuesday.

In KwaZulu-Natal, members of the ANC and the DA were expected to challenge each other for the position of uMngeni municipality councillor.

The ward was previously represented by a DA member who had since resigned.

Two by-elections were scheduled for the Western Cape.

One for Cape Town and another for the Witzenberg municipality.

In Cape Town, the ANC, the COPE, the National Freedom Party (NFP), the United Democratic Movement, and the DA would contest a ward previously held by a DA member whose party membership had been cancelled.

In Witzenberg, three ANC members, an NFP candidate and DA member were contesting a ward also previously held by a DA member whose membership had been cancelled.

Eighteen voting stations would be open from 07:00 until 21:00 on Wednesday.
