IEC to immediately address voters' roll issues in Tlokwe

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has welcomed the judgment of the Constitutional Court which paves the way for all 26.3 million registered voters to participate in the 2016 Municipal Elections.

IEC Deputy Chairperson, Terry Tselane, says the IEC is developing a programme to address the issue of registering all addresses on the voters' roll in Tlokwe Municipality.

Earlier this year, independent candidates in Tlokwe argued that the local government elections should not go ahead without first registering all addresses on the voters' roll.

Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng gave the IEC 18 months to resolve voter information issues, but said issues in Tlokwe should be addressed immediately.

We have set a committee that is advising the Commission on electoral matters to develop a programme of action to address these issues. And there is now a programme underway, which we will then present to the commission on Friday.

Terry Tselane, IEC Deputy Chairperson

We have committed ourselves to comply with the issue. So, in Tlokwe we will deal with the issue.

Terry Tselane, IEC Deputy Chairperson
