JOHANNESBURG - The Independent Electoral Commission says it's confident the lights will stay on during next week's local government elections.
The IEC says it has faith in the plans Eskom has in place.
IEC deputy chief electoral officer Mawethu Mosery said: "We’ve been in dialogue with Eskom in preparation for these elections.
"We began our planning with them as soon as we knew we’re going ahead with elections. We’re satisfied that the plans they have in place for backup are good for us."
