Subforum elections postponed

2018-08-07 06:00

Elections to revive a defunct forum have been postponed to the end of August.

The Mitchell’s Plain Community Policing Forum (CPF) initiated elections along with the three active block watches in the Westridge area to elect a subforum.

A forum executive was elected five years ago but was declared dysfunctional and disbanded.

The CPF then called for organisations to register as part of the forum at the end of July, with the election set to be held on Wednesday last week.

Ashley Potts, CPF deputy chairperson, says the meeting needed to be postponed due to the lack of a quorum.

“There were only three member organisations and we have put out another call to register.

“We also did a walkabout in the area with the active block committees to issue forms,” says Potts.

The meeting was postponed to Wednesday 23 August and will be held at the Dagbreek Community Hall at 19:30.

“We have three active block watches and we are in the process of establishing another four,” says Potts.

The subforum is for the entire area of Westridge and includes The Westridge and Westgate.

Organisations, including churches and schools, are urged to register ahead of the elections to allow them access to vote.
