IEC says the 2016 elections have been the most difficult yet
30 July 2016
Electoral Commission of South Africa vice chairperson Terry Tselane said that this year's municipal elections are the most difficult South Africa has ever experienced.
The IEC had experienced problems with its voters’ roll and there had been political killings.
It is one of the most serious conflicts that the IEC has experienced in the history of elections and in the history of the country.
He assured guests at the opening of the Century City conference centre, which would be the Western Cape IEC’s nerve centre for the coming days that they would deliver free and fair elections.
Provincial electoral officer Courtney Sampson warned that after the 3rd of August election, there would be unhappy people as there are only 914 seats available for 7 869 candidates.
