Parliamentarians have less than two weeks to meet the people The Court of Appeal finally finalized the electoral law to arrange for candidates to participate in national and regional elections.
The Constitutional Court has not yet made a decision on the application of the National Legislature for a six-month extension.
Lawmakers could not finalize the Bill early because it was enacted only on January 10th this year where public hearings could only start in March.
In June 2020, Judge Mbuyiseli Madlanga declared the election law unconstitutional to the extent that it requires adult citizens to be elected to the National Assembly and local legislators only by their political parties.
He suspended the repeal of the Act to give lawmakers 24 months to rectify the flaws in the Act.
The illegal termination will end soon, two years after the court made the declaration.
This means that the law could be illegal until the court of law gives lawmakers six months to complete the bill.
But SA Movement leader Mmusi Maimane said lawmakers would be held accountable for contempt of court for failing to process the bill in a timely manner.
Election law is said to be unconstitutional.
