Judgment has been reserved in the matter involving the National Freedom Party and the Independent Electoral Commission, the party’s spokesperson Sabelo Sigudu confirmed this afternoon.

The NFP appeared at the Electoral Court in Bloemfontein today where it challenged the Electoral Commission of SA’s decision to disqualify it from the August 3 local government elections after it failed to pay the R400 000 deposit before the payment deadline.

Parties had to submit their candidate lists and pay their deposit by June 2.

Those who failed to meet the deadline were immediately disqualified from taking part in the elections.

On Thursday NFP members picketed against the IEC's decision. The party pleaded for calm and was confident that the court would rule in its favour.
