The Constitutional Court ruled that the 2016 municipal elections go ahead despite incomplete address information on the voters' roll.
This comes after independent candidates in Tlokwe argued that insufficient voter information challenged the credibility of local government elections and amounted to electoral fraud.
Public law expert Cathy Powell explains that the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) will have to comply will several court orders stipulated in the judgment.
The IEC has been given 18 months to resolve issues regarding voter information, in preparation for the 2019 general election.
