ANC and DA fire municipal election salvoes
Political parties have wasted no time attacking each other in the run-up to the municipal elections. The ANC in the Western Cape has accused the DA of removing ANC posters in Cape Town. ANC deputy provincial secretary Max Ozinsky says the DA also ignored poster regulations by putting up more than one poster per pole. This apparently happened less than five hours after political parties in the Western Cape signed the election code of conduct, committing themselves to a free, fair and peaceful election campaign. Ozinsky said that the matter had been reported to the IEC and that a criminal charge could also be laid against the DA.
