Over 7,000 to contest local govt elections in Western Cape

Cape Town’s metro will have the longest proportional representation ballot paper, with 37 parties.

File picture: Lauren Isaacs/EWN.

CAPE TOWN - More than 7,000 candidates will contest the local government elections in the Western Cape on 3 August.

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says candidates who were disqualified, were excluded from the list largely for failing to supply the required documentation and pay deposits.

The IEC's Courtney Sampson says ballot papers will be printed after they're "signed off" by political parties.

"What you'll see is the final list that is where we're at the moment. We're in the process of getting the ballot papers sorted out so that they can start with printing, once we've had it signed off by the political parties."

Cape Town's metro will have the longest proportional representation ballot paper, with 37 parties.
