WC electoral commission accused of lying election went on without challanges

The Western Cape Electoral Commission (IEC) has been accused by the Land Party of fooling people by saying that voting progressed without major challenges.

Vanessa Swanepoel, head of elections for the Land Party, said there was “nothing free or fair about the elections whatsoever”. She said the Party was outraged at the lack of communication with parties and citizens.

Good Party secretary-general Brett Herron said there appeared to be more IEC system errors this time than in previous elections.

IEC provincial head Michael Hendrickse said the voter management device was also dependent on bandwidth, sometimes it dropped, fluctuated and caused the system to slow down. The IEC was said to be of great concern as the system it used seemed to be unstable and thousands of voters stood for hours in the cold and wet weather.
