SA will hold parliamentary elections sometime between May 7 and August 5, the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) said on Wednesday, raising the likelihood of a vote in May, which is the preference of President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The IEC briefed the media on its preparations and set out timelines for a vote that will elect a new national assembly and determine the next president.

Ramaphosa, who has the final say on the election date, has previously said he would like a vote before the end of May.
