Full enquiry for Tlakula matter, court rules

2014-04-29 17:43
Johannesburg - The Electoral Court ruled on Tuesday that a full inquiry will be heard into an application seeking the resignation of IEC chairperson Pansy Tlakula.

"We are of the opinion that the matter needs further clarity," Judge Lotter Wepener said.

The court, sitting in the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg, would hear the enquiry on Friday at 10:00. This gave Tlakula sufficient time to file the necessary affidavit, he said.

The court was hearing an application by opposition parties to have Tlakula resign as Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) chairperson ahead of the 7 May national elections.

The parties are the United Democratic Movement, the African Christian Democratic Party, the Congress of the People, Agang SA, and the Economic Freedom Fighters.

The application follows a forensic investigation by the national Treasury on the procurement of the IEC's Riverside Office Park building in Centurion, Pretoria.

The probe found the process was neither fair, transparent, nor cost-effective.

It found Tlakula did not give guidance or formally inform various people what was expected of them in the process.

Tlakula has maintained she was not accused of corruption in the report.

The Treasury's report followed a recommendation by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela in her own report into the matter, released in August 2013.
