With only a few hours to go for South Africans to cast their ballots, official observers are pleased that stations are running smoothly.

Nomfundo Walaza, Observer for the Electoral Code of Conduct Commission (ECOCC) says that voting stations are running efficiently and that voters are surprisingly calm this year.
“We have been doing this since 2004, as ECOCC, and this is the third time we are doing a national election. It seems as if things are much calmer this time. So far, so good,” she said.

Walaza said what was interesting for her was that voters weren’t even “perturbed” that people who were standing in the queue wore party political t-shirts.
“That’s something I couldn’t understand.”
