EFF claims inconsistencies on voters roll

The Economic Freedom Fighter’s (EFF) in the Southern Cape claims it has noted discrepancies on the voters’ roll in the region.

The party’s regional election coordinator, Laetitia Arries, says hundreds of people at George are registered in voting districts where they do not live.

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says it has addressed problems that have been brought to its attention. Yet, Arries says the EFF is unhappy.

“You sit with a situation where you put the person’s ID number into their system and then it shows the person is registered in ward 20, but when you put in the street address, you’ll find the person is registered in another voting district. The EFF can’t accept this, because this will not be a fair election,” says Arries.
