The Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal will hold three by-elections on Wednesday, the IEC said.

More than 22,000 people had registered to cast their votes in the three wards, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) said in a statement on Tuesday.

In KwaZulu-Natal, members of the African National Congress and the Democratic Alliance were expected to challenge each other for the position of uMngeni municipality councillor. The ward was previously represented by a DA member who had since resigned.

Two by-elections were scheduled for the Western Cape. One for the city of Cape Town and another for the Witzenburg municipality.

In Cape Town, the ANC, the Congress of the People, the National Freedom Party, the United Democratic Movement, and the DA would contest a ward previously held by a DA member whose party membership had been cancelled.

In Witzenburg, three ANC members, an NFP candidate and DA member were contesting a ward also previously held by a DA member whose membership had been cancelled.

Eighteen voting stations would be open from 7am until 9pm on Wednesday.
