IEC commits to resolving complaints from parties


The Electoral Commission (IEC) says it is committed to resolving complaints from parties. Some parties have expressed concern about voters’ names not appearing on the voters roll.

Concerns have also been expressed on the efficacy of the Voting Management Devices – which some claim slowed down the voting process. IEC Commissioner, Nomsa Masuku says, for now, the process of conflict resolution is on track.

“We are managing complaints from political parties. We went to the party liaison committee and we did not get a sense that they [parties] are not happy. But it means for the moment they are standing down until the point at which it is appropriate [for them to raise issues],” adds Masuku. Provincial electoral officer Gugu Langa says the political parties are aware of what needs to be done to lodge an objection to the IEC.

Langa was reacting to reports that opposition political parties in Bushbuckridge are rejecting the outcome of the results claiming that some ballot boxes from other wards have been tampered with by the IEC officials.

“The only avenue is for them to submit an objection. Then everything will be put on hold and the commission will deal with that objection. We will make a ruling on the findings, whether those [complaints] are found to be true. So it all depends to them [parties] submitting an objection,” she explains.

Earlier, another party criticised the conduct and the professionalism of the IEC in these elections. The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) says the IEC flouted its own rules and failed to meet the expectations of the public.

This comes hours after the UDM questioned the freeness and fairness of the elections after some over 70 000 registered voters were allegedly turned away when their names were not on the voters roll.
