ANC Peter Mokaba region welcomes Polokwane high court ruling to allow IEC to register ward 17 candidates in LNM.



The African National Congress (ANC) in Peter Mokaba region welcomes the ruling of the Polokwane high court which allowed and ordered the ANC to register Ward 17 ward councilor Candidate of Lepelle-Nkumpi Municipality (LNM) with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).


According to the party, on August 26th the commission was restrained by the court order to register its ward candidate pending the outcomes of a review application.


Machaka Jimmy ANC regional spokesperson, said the ruling was based on the fact that the applicant, Moroaswi Addy, brought a review application together with an urgent application, he sought an interim order pending the outcome of the review application.


Machaka said Judge Gerrit Muller granted an interim order in favour of the applicant pending the outcome of the review which is scheduled to be heard on the October 21st.


“On September 21st, the matter was re-considered by the Polokwane High Court wherein the ANC argued that the order was wrong, erroneous and also that certain factors were ignored when the interim order was granted, the consequences flowing from such an order will violate the ANC rights to partake in the local government elections, and therefore it is in the interest of justice for the matter to be reconsidered,” said Machaka.


He said the court found that it made a mistake to restrain the IEC from registering the ANC candidate number one, more over when the applicant had no issue against candidate number one.


“The ANC welcomes the High Court ruling and will ensure a decisive victory not only Ward 17 but the entire wards within Peter Mokaba region,” he concluded.
