IEC says concourt judgment doesn't mean 2016 polls will be rigged

The Independent Electoral Commission  says it’s wrong for some people to claim that yesterday’s Constitutional Court ruling on the Tlokwe case will allow local government elections to be rigged.

Judges said they had found that the voters' roll was invalid, because it did not contain the address information of all voters, but suspended that finding for 18 months to allow the 3 August polls to go ahead.

IEC Deputy Chair Terry Tselane says it’s wrong to claim this issue is all about vote-rigging.
The Democratic Alliance’s Mike Moriarty however says it’s a fair ruling.

But the suspension of inade-quacy does not apply to Tlokwe itself
