ActionSA has received the disappointing news that the Electoral Court has found against our application.
Given the urgent nature of the application, the Electoral Court will only provide written reasons at a later date.
While we are disappointed by the outcome, ActionSA is dedicated to the rule of law and we respect the outcome of the court and the experience of the jurists who presided over our matter.
While our focus has been unfalteringly on the campaign, our attention now turns to the extraordinary measures we will implement to ensure that voters are able to locate ActionSA on the ballot papers.
We express our deepest appreciation to the countless number of South Africans who have rallied behind us in this battle with the IEC and for their support of our efforts to present the alterative needed in South Africa.
ActionSA will remain on the ballot papers, but will only be identifiable by our logo and ward candidate name on the ward ballot papers.
