The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in the Waterberg has alerted The BEAT to an incorrect date published in the Friday May 11 edition.

We erroneously published the date for the by-elections scheduled for Bela-Bela’s Ward 9 as 20 July, which was an error of judgement on our part.

The correct date for the by-elections is Tuesday 17 July.

Waterberg IEC supervisor, Malome Nkoana, said the electoral commission had lined up Friday 18 May to Sunday 20 May, for a pre-poll targeted communication and registration drive.

On the weekend of Saturday 26 May and Sunday 27 May, the IEC has lined up a registration campaign.

The much-anticipated by-elections were earmarked to fill up the ward vacated by the DA’s Kobus van der Merwe.

Political parties across the spectrum were raring to go for the ward.
