The IEC says they are ready and set for Elections on Monday

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in the Western Cape has said they are on their final stages of preparations for Monday as the country goes to the polls for the local government elections.

Provincial electoral officer Michael Hendrickse said in a media briefing that the province is set and ready for the municipal polls. That special voting will get under way on Saturday for those who have applied because they are unable to visit their local polling station on the day.

Hendrickse said there are 96 political parties that will be contesting within the Western Cape – 53 of these will be in the Cape Town metro. Just over 12,400 candidates, of which 85 will be independents, will be contesting these elections. He also added that the Western Cape has 1,577 voting stations across the province that will be open and ready for voting.
