Vote counting had been finalised in the 2011 local government election, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) said today.
“All votes have been counted and verified,” said spokeswoman Kate Bapela.
“We are now preparing for the official announcement at 6pm.”
She said the objection process was rounded off without any significant glitches.
The commission was preparing for numerous dignitaries and visitors expected at its results centre in Pretoria.
“We are working hard to ensure everything runs smoothly.”
