Johannesburg – The Independent Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) will brief the media in Johannesburg on Thursday about issues around the enforcement of the Electoral Code of Conduct.

"The Municipal Electoral Act 27 of 2000 provides an Electoral Code of Conduct which is Schedule 1 to the act," the IEC said in a statement. "The code’s provisions seek to create an environment which is conducive to free and fair elections."

The IEC said a number of different institutions had a role to play in the enforcement of the statutory instruments designed to ensure elections were free and fair.

Local government elections will be held later this year.

A date is yet to be announced by Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Des van Rooyen.
