Former IEC Commissioner, Terry Tselane says the commission could have notified ActionSA of the missing information on its application to register as a political party.
The party is taking the IEC to court, after its name was left off the local government elections ballot paper.
It’s not the first time the party’s butted heads with the IEC.
The commission previously rejected Action SA’s application, after another political party claimed Action SA had stolen its colours and logo.
Tselane said, “perhaps officials working within the commission could have notified Action SA and other parties that have registered and not included this information to say, there seems to be information missing here so that all the details are provided for. That is not an obligation that’s part of the IEC.”
“The only obligation that the IEC has is to make sure that whatever information that has been supplied is not confusing to the voter with its information being similar to any of the political parties that has already registered.”
