By close of business today, 12 October 2021, the IEC’s legal team must file its responding affidavit setting out its opposition to our case.
This deadline arises from the directives issued by the registrar of the Electoral Court.
ActionSA is keen to receive these papers, having awaited them since we filed our notice of motion nearly a week ago. We will be finalising our heads of argument as soon as possible, filing before the next deadline of Friday 15 October, and working with the courts to ensure that this matter is dealt with as soon as possible.
We remain deeply appreciative of the outpouring of support we have received from South Africans across the country who have expressed their shock at the handling of this matter.
