FAN heads to High Court to correct municipal election outcome unjustly favouring EFF

 

The Freedom Advocacy Network (FAN) and the Forum for Democrats (FFD) will be heard in the North West High Court, Mahikeng to correct the allocation of seats for the 2021 local government elections in the Ramotshere Moiloa Local Municipal Council.

In December 2021 the IEC found that due to the incorrect allocation of total Ward and PR votes (9 206), the Economic Freedom Fighters was incorrectly allocated 6 seats. Based on the correct total of Ward and PR votes cast in favour of the EFF (9 034), the EFF should have been allocated only 5 seats, with the remaining seat being allocated to the Forum for Democrats.

Despite the IEC correcting the election results the Council has taken no steps to rectify the situation. The Council is required to ensure that its seats are held by members according to the principle of proportional representation and according to the results determined by the IEC.

 

The media is invited to attend the court hearing, the details of which are:
