The ACDP fights to contest the election in the Mother City

The African Christian Democratic Party says it is unlikely that the municipal election in the Cape Town metropole will have to be postponed because of its Constitutional Court challenge. The Electoral Court in Bloemfontein upheld a decision by the IEC that the ACDP could not contest the election in Cape Town as it had not included the city on the list when paying its deposit. The ACDP insists that the bulk payment made to the IEC was enough to cover the deposit. ACDP MP Steve Swart says if the party fails in Monday's Constitutional Court bid, it will be out of the Cape Town metropolitan race as it will have no other legal recourse.
