Electoral Commission welcomes ConCourt’s decision on voters’ roll

The Electoral Commission of South Africa welcomed Thursday’s ruling by the Constitutional Court granting an extension to November 2019 for the commission to update the voters’ roll with addresses for all voters.

“The ruling provides certainty on the status of the voters’ roll and especially those voters without addresses ahead of next year’s national and provincial elections.

“Today’s judgment will greatly assist the Electoral Commission in ensuring the elections are free and fair,” the commission said in a statement.

The reaction follows a judgment by the Constitutional Court on Thursday ordering the commission to continue its constitutional duty of collecting addresses for the voters’ roll until November 2019.
