Objections to be finalised - IEC

2014-05-09 14:50
(Sapa)
Pretoria - Four objections received by the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) will be finalised before results are announced, chairperson Pansy Tlakula said on Friday.

"We are still dealing with these objections so we are unable to tell you about the nature of these," she told reporters at the national results centre in Pretoria.

A complaint was received from the Economic Freedom Fighters, one from the Democratic Alliance and two from the United Democratic Movement.

Earlier, Tlakula said the final elections results would be announced at 18:00 on Saturday.

"With 97.96% of results captured, we are confident of being able to announce the official results tomorrow," she said.

"As we speak, we are in the process of finalising the capture of the results in the last few remaining voting districts."

Just before lunch on Friday, the IEC had finalised the capturing of results in four provinces - Mpumalanga, North West, Limpopo and Northern Cape, Tlakula said.

The five remaining provinces were almost complete.

Eastern Cape was 99.8% complete, Free State 94.7%, Gauteng 98.2%, KwaZulu-Natal 98.2% and Western Cape 98.3%.

Tlakula said 17.69 million votes had been captured nationally so far and 17.12 million provisionally.

"We are still awaiting the delivery of ballots from eight foreign missions for inclusion in the count for the international voting districts."
