ANC And MK Party Clash In Electoral Court

The ANC's argument centres around the claim that the MK party did not adhere to the proper procedures during its registration process.

The African National Congress (ANC) and the Umkhonto Wesizwe (MK) party are set to go head-to-head in the Electoral Court in Bloemfontein on Tuesday.

The ANC is seeking to have the MK party’s registration with the Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) reviewed and set aside. The governing party alleges that the MK party did not follow the proper procedures in its bid to contest the upcoming elections on the 29th of May.

According to the ANC, the MK party’s initial application for registration was rejected by the IEC due to its failure to meet the prescribed requirements.

However, instead of submitting a new application, the MK party allegedly unlawfully supplemented its original application. The ANC argues that this was a violation of the proper process and therefore the MK party’s registration should be nullified.

On the other hand, the IEC maintains that it followed all the necessary protocols and that the MK party’s registration was done in accordance with the law.

The MK party itself is confident in the legitimacy of its registration and is optimistic about the outcome of the case.

\Nhlamulo Ndhlela, the party’s spokesperson, expressed confidence in the IEC’s adherence to the Electoral Act and believes that they will emerge victorious. The MK party is determined to appear on the ballot for the upcoming elections.

The ANC’s argument centres around the claim that the MK party did not adhere to the proper procedures during its registration process.

They contend that the MK party unlawfully supplemented its application after it was initially rejected by the IEC. The ANC argues that this action undermines the integrity of the registration process and calls into question the legitimacy of the MK party’s participation in the elections.

The ANC’s legal team will likely present evidence to support their claim that the MK party’s actions were in violation of the Electoral Act.

They may also argue that the IEC failed in its duty to ensure that all political parties adhere to the prescribed requirements for registration. The ANC will seek to convince the court that the MK party’s registration should be set aside due to these alleged irregularities.
