POLITICAL PARTIES, COUNCIL OF STATE, IEC CASE URGENT – MAPHALLA

Maseru, July 26 — Former and long-time serving Member of Parliament (MP), Mr. Sello Maphalla says the case against the Council of State and Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) needs to be treated with urgency.

The five political parties being Basotho Action Party (BAP), Democratic Congress (DC), All Basotho Convention (ABC), Basotho National Party (BNP) and Popular Front for Democracy (PFD) have filed constitutional case in which they want the court to compel the Council of State to urgently advise King Letsie III to appoint a tribunal to investigate the IEC Commissioners’ fitness to hold office as per Section 66 (12) of the constitution.
