A faction of the African Transformation Movement (ATM) wants to deregister the party ahead of the elections.
The group has written to the IEC to make the request.
The secretary-general of the party, Thandisizwe Khukula says what ATM party candidate Bonisile Ngqulwana says are 'baseless lies'.
If he had an issue with the fraudulent registration, if at all it was there, he would have used the opportunity which was given by the IEC to lodge an objection of a political party.— Thandisizwe Khukula, Secretary-general - ATM
In July he came to us to donate six cars so we may campaign with them as the ATM and we rejected them because we did not know where they are coming from.— Thandisizwe Khukula, Secretary-general - ATM
How on earth would one challenge the authenticity of the registration of the party when he is a candidate of that party from regional to national.— Thandisizwe Khukula, Secretary-general - ATM
