It had argued that the new party's registration by Deputy Chief Electoral Officer, Mawethu Mosery, was unlawful.

The ruling party says Mosery went against procedure when he allowed MK to supplement its registration application after its initial one was rejected.

The ANC says the party should have filed a fresh application.

Meanwhile, the Independent Electoral Commission says Tuesday's ruling provides the necessary clarity and certainty to facilitate the completion of candidate nomination processes.
