 This application follows upon this Court’s decision in New Nation Movement II. On 11 June 2020, this Court in New Nation Movement II held that the Electoral Act is unconstitutional to the extent that it requires that adult citizens may be elected to the National Assembly and Provincial Legislatures only through their membership of political parties.
