REPRESENTATIVES of the four political parties and three independent candidates pledged to free and fair elections as they signed the Code of Conduct for the upcoming local government elections at a ceremony in the town hall last Tuesday.

Greytown Magistrate, Mr C.F. Masikane read the code of conduct prior to each candidate accepting and signing on behalf of their party. Among the VIPS present was Mr C.S. Msomi, election conflict co-oridinator and Mr S.P. Ndlovu, regional supervisor, Greytown Station Commander, Lieutenant-Colonel Mchunu, who pledged his support and that of the police to free, fair and peaceful elections and Inkosi Ngubane, who pledged his support and co-operation on behalf of the traditional leaders in the district. Also present were the 90 presiding officers, who will be running the 90 voting stations on 3 August and pledged to ensure the elections were free and fair.

Updated information on Umvoti's election readiness was given by electoral project co-ordinator Mr Benson Ngcobo, who said 58 550 voters could cast their vote on 3 August - 118 candidates were standing for the 14 Ward seats - a further 13 PR would take their seats in council chambers making a total of 27 to represent Umvoti.

Mr Chris Naidoo of Greytown IEC told the Greytown Gazette that 695 had registered for special votes and a further 491 for home visits - these votes take place on 1 and 2 August. The Code-of-Conduct signing cere-mony was organised by Greytown IEC, and apart from a late start, went smoothly.

The normally staid proceedings were somewhat livelier this time round as EFF and IRP supporters (separately) sang and danced.
