The Electoral Court has given the green light for the Jacob Zuma-backed uMkhonto weSizwe Party, with the court striking down the ANC’s attempt to get the MK party deregistered.

In handing down the judgment, the court said the deregistration of the party now would not give the party enough time to register again.

“If the ANC’s application is granted it will be too late for the MK to register as a party,” the court said.

The ruling party took the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to the court in Bloemfontein last Tuesday, 19 March, over the electoral body’s registration and inclusion of the uMkhonto weSizwe Party on the 29 May 2024 ballot.
