As the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) awaits the Constitutional Courts’ judgement on whether elections will be postponed or not.
It will continue its work as if elections will take place on the proclaimed date of the 27th of October.

This past Monday, close to 60 000 candidates submitted their nomination lists and election deposits amounting to R7 million to the commission.
