Pretoria - The main national results operations centre of the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) was officially opened in Pretoria on Wednesday.

IEC chairperson Pansy Tlakula conducted the ceremony at the Tshwane events centre, west of Pretoria.

"The national operations centre together with the provincial results centres have become an enduring symbol of our commitment to deliver a free and fair election," she said.

"It now gives me great pleasure to declare the results operations centre for the 2014 national and provincial elections officially open."

She said like previous polls, the 7 May elections would conform to internationally accepted criteria, including impartial administration of the electoral process.

President Jacob Zuma and several representatives of opposition parties were at the launch and were given a tour of the huge electoral centre.
