IEC Reviews Registration Of MK Party Amidst Legal Challenges

The MK Party gained significant attention when former president Jacob Zuma publicly declared his support for the political newcomers.

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has confirmed that it is currently reviewing the registration of the uMkhonto weSizwe Party. However, the process is not without its challenges.

The African National Congress (ANC), the ruling party in South Africa, has lodged a complaint with the Electoral Court, seeking to set aside the registration and declare it unlawful.

Adding to the complexity, the ANC is also embroiled in a trademark dispute with the MK Party over similarities in their logos. This dispute further complicates the registration process and raises questions about the party’s legitimacy.

Janet Love, the deputy chairperson of the IEC, has clarified that the commission can only proceed with the registration based on existing documentation and legislation. The issue of the party’s name and identification is currently being handled by the High Court, and the IEC does not have control over the outcome of this matter.

As the review of the uMkhonto weSizwe Party’s registration continues, it remains to be seen how the legal challenges and trademark dispute will impact its future in South African politics. The IEC will rely on the decisions made by the relevant courts to guide their actions in this matter.
