Elections 2024: Casac wants to join the IEC’s ConCourt appeal

# The Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution has applied to the Constitutional Court, to be admitted as a friend of the court in the Electoral Commission’s appeal matter. The IEC wants the Electoral Court ruling allowing former president Jacob Zuma to contest a seat in Parliament to be set aside. Casac’s Lawson Naidoo says a consequence of the Electoral Court’s ruling was that despite the ConCourt’s decision in June 2021 sentencing Zuma to 15 months in prison, he was presently not disqualified from seeking election to Parliament.
