JOHANNESBURG - The Electoral Court has excused ActionSA's application to have the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC's) choice to discard its name from the ward voting form paper pronounced illegal and unlawful. 


The court gave the request on Friday after the consultation on Thursday, with motivations to be given at a later stage. 


ActionSA had contended that the shortfall of its name on the polling form paper would confound citizens as the last voting form just holds back the party's logo. 


The IEC ,then again, expressed that the party chose not to fill in subtleties with respect to the enrollment structure requiring a condensing and just had itself to fault for the setback. 


The judgment probably comes as a help for the IEC which is in a hurry in front of the 1 November neighborhood government races.We ought to see what will happen in the next coming days, as this is a very serious issue.
