Johannesburg - The ANC wants the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to speed up the implementation of the law that forces parties to disclose their funders.
The ruling party said on Friday that this, however, must not be done to compromise the process to ensure that all parties disclose their funders in line with the Political Party Funding Act and its regulations.
The IEC was holding public hearings on the regulations for the Party Funding Act.
The Chief Executive of Party Funding George Mahlangu told the public hearings in Cape Town that the IEC will not be able to implement the Act to force parties to disclose their funders until the local government elections in 2021.
This was the point reiterated by IEC Chief Electoral Officer Sy Mamabolo on Thursday who said they will be able to implement the law by the next local polls.
