The Independent Electoral Commission has encouraged those South Africans, who qualify for special voting, to register before the end of the day.

IEC chairperson, Glen Mashinini says this category allows those who are physically disabled, or who can’t physically be at a voting station on the 1st of November, to cast their votes, at a specified date and time, before the election.

He says this would also reduce numbers at polling stations on voting day.

The Electoral Commission of South Africa says only three political parties declared donations above the R100 000 threshold.

During a press-briefing yesterday, the IEC revealed that only the ANC, DA, and Action-SA declared individual donations of more than this threshold.

When questioned about the EFF not reporting any donations, IEC commissioner, Dr Nomsa Masuku had this to say.

The EEF is one of 502 political parties that have not disclosed their funders as per the requirement of the new Political Party Funding Act.

Chief Executive for Party Funding, George Mahlangu said, of these 502 parties 108 parties have been written to by the IEC to request that they comply.

In March 2018, the EFF was the only party that opposed the bill when it was before the National Assembly (NA).
