IEC vows to run elections with integrity

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has vowed to deliver safe and fair elections on Wednesday.

In what has been described as the most hotly contested poll since 1994, more than 26 million registered voters are expected to vote in the 2016 municipal elections.

IEC Deputy Chairperson Terry Tselane has vowed to run the elections with integrity.

“We are confident that we will have free and fair elections on the 3rd of August and we will not betray the trust that our people have bestowed on us as well as the Constitution.”

Tselane adds, “We will make sure that the elections are run with integrity and everybody is comfortable that what we are going to be announcing indeed is the will of the people.”
