IEC slams removal of DA placards in Limpopo

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has condemned the removal of election campaign posters and placards of political parties.

People wearing African National Congress T-shirts in Ga-Sekororo outside Polokwane in Limpopo were seen removing Democratic Alliance placards.

Limpopo Electoral Officer, Nkaro Mateta says political parties are aware of the seriousness of such offences.

“As the IEC we really condemn this kind of activities, political parties are aware of the prohibited conduct that they are not supposed to remove or deface posters of other political parties, so indeed we are going to take an initiative ourselves, we are going to call the leaders of both parties to really account on what has happened.”
