Cape Town local election under threat

By Nadia Samie

The upcoming local government election could be under threat in Cape Town after a small party launched a last-minute application to the electoral court in Bloemfontein. The United Party of South Africa came about after last-year’s floor-crossing period in Parliament.
The United Party will now ask the Electoral Court to postpone the poll in the metropole, as it is contesting the Independent Electoral Commissions decision to disallow it from contesting 36 wards in the city. The IEC cites that the party had failed to provide a full list of candidates before the January 19th deadline.
