ANC official still pursuing IEC complaint

2016-08-05 20:58

East London – The ANC has not dropped its complaint to the IEC about hundreds of unsecured and marked ballot papers found in a tent at a results centre.

ANC provincial secretary Oscar Mabuyane said on Friday that the party’s provincial chairperson Phumulo Masualle was driving to Port Elizabeth to convince regional task team convener Bheza Ntshona to let the matter against the IEC go.

Hundreds of marked ballot papers were found in a tent at the back of the IEC’s regional results centre in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday. The ballots were supposed to have been transported to warehouses, but somehow ended up in the tent.

ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa earlier told News24 that the party withdrew its grievance about the outcome of elections in the Nelson Mandela Bay metro.

“All we needed was an explanation of certain things that we have raised, of allegations of irregularities. Those things have been explained to us. We are in the process of considering the withdrawal and we are satisfied with the explanation of the IEC," he said.

According to the IEC’s results available at 15:20, in Nelson Mandela Bay the DA had won 46.7% of the vote and the ANC 40.9%.
