THE Oshakati-East by-election will happen tomorrow the 24th of August as planned after the Oshakati Regional Court dismissed a last minute challenge by the All People’ Party (APP).
The APP approached the High court with application to halt the By elections because the Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) refused to register its candidate who turned up after the deadline for the registration of candidates.
Five political parties – the CoD, NEFF, PDM, Swanu and Swapo have fielded candidates. There is also one independent candidate that will contest in the election process.
Polling stations will open at 07:00 and close at 21:00.
