JOHANNESBURG - Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) chairperson Glen Mashinini has announced that elections are likely to take place in May but the official date will be announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The last registration weekend for voters to register to vote will be on 26 and 27 January.

The IEC made the announcements at their headquarters in Centurion on Wednesday.

Mashinini says elections are likely to take place before the end of May next year.

The commission says it will be up to President Cyril Ramaphosa to announce the official date South Africans will go to the polls.

Mashinini says: “The election will take place in May and as we normally do it on a public holiday on a Wednesday, it will be one of those Wednesdays within the month of May after 7 May.”

The commission will also hold its second and final voter registration weekend early next year.

It has urged all eligible people to register to vote.
