JOHANNESBURG – leader of the Black First Land First (BLF) Andile Mngxitama welcomed the electoral court decision allowing his party to participate in elections.
Freedom Front Plus (FF Plus) have tried BLF deregistered as a political party in Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg on Monday, however, the facts of the case were not disputed.
Electoral Court ruled that the election of South Africa's Commission (IEC) was wrong to deny TF plus the ability to challenge the registration of BLF and sent the case back to the Chief Commissioner.
Ruling on Monday meant the FF Plus will be able to get close to to IEC, to challenge the legitimacy of the BLF to participate in the elections as soon as its registration has been declared.
Mngxitama said it does not matter because it will not happen before the election day.
"The court did not give any time frame or set a reasonable time. So it's going to happen soon after the elections, and the main thing that we are going to the polls now, and they need to stop this tactic useless waste of time. "
But the leader of the FF Plus Pieter Groenewald said the decision was a victory for his party.
"We are happy because of the selection of the court with the & # 39 are precisely the argument of the FF Plus, although he did not hear the merit of the case."
Electoral Court ruled that the Chief Electoral Commissioner shall review the decision concerns FF Plus and publish its conclusions in a reasonable time.
