ANC application to deregister MK party dismissed

ANC loses court bid to deregister MK party

The court application by the African National Congress (ANC) to deregister uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) party failed in the Electoral Court.

Judge Lebogang Modiba said the ANC had no basis and the application was dismissed. “We find there is nothing unlawful about registration of MK party by the deputy chief electoral officer,” said the court, adding that the ANC had failed on two occasions to challenge the registration of MK last year.


The future of the MK party was hanging in the balance after the ANC challenged its registration in the Electoral Court.
