Pretoria - The chief electoral officer of the IEC says he believes everything is under control and the organisation is ready for the final results presentation at 18:00 on Saturday.

Speaking to News24 earlier on Saturday, Mosotho Moepya said he was confident that everything had gone according to plan until now, and there were only minor issues still to attend to.

“Everything’s going well, so far so good,” he said.

“In this game it’s not over until it’s over, and it’s going to be over tonight,” he joked.

Moepya said all of the staff at the Electoral Commission of South Africa were tired and had not had much sleep over the last few days.

However, he had managed to get five hours’ sleep the night before so was feeling much better, adding that it was the first time he’d slept that long in the last few days.
