EFF objects to ward results in Thabazimbi

The EFF has lodged an objection with the IEC regarding the results of ward seven in the Thabazimbi Municipality in Limpopo.

The party has requested a re-run of the elections in that ward.

Provincial electoral officer Nkaro Mateta says an EFF party agent has made several allegations against the presiding officer.

“Then he also alleges that during counting the presiding officer allowed some break, I don’t know whether during that break some people were allowed to move out of the counting station or what happened.”

Mateta adds: “Then I think the other allegation that this person is making, is that there are people who were allowed to vote twice. I do not know how. So the commission has been informed of this objection.”
