DLAMINI-ZUMA: NO LEGISLATION GIVES GOVT OR IEC POWER TO POSTPONE POLLS
Clergyman of Cooperative Governance, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, said that the IEC was relied upon to move toward the Constitutional Court this week to critically request the neighborhood government races to be deferred.
CAPE TOWN - The public authority has authoritatively announced 27 October as the date for the neighborhood government races, however this doesn't mean the surveys will happen on that day.
Priest of Cooperative Governance, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, said that the decree was expected to permit the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to go to the Constitutional Court with a lawfully fixed date to request a deferment.
A request by previous Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke found that races held in October would not be free or reasonable because of the COVID-19 pandemic. He said that the IEC should move toward a skilled court and request a deferment to no later than the finish of February one year from now.
Priest Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said that the IEC was required to move toward the Constitutional Court this week to earnestly request the nearby government decisions to be delayed.
An incredible arrangement holds tight the court's choice:
"In the event that the ConCourt says it isn't consenting to the deferment, I don't think we have another response. Since no one has the forces – there's no enactment that gives the public authority, or Cogta or the IEC to defer the decisions," she said.
"In case there was, we would have delayed them without going to court," the pastor added.
The 27 October date for the races gazetted on Tuesday is a lawful custom to consider the discretionary commission to go to court to request a deferment.
It is in accordance with the constituent schedule drawn up by the IEC, which should in any case be clung to until the nearby government decisions are authoritatively delayed.
