'The IEC is there to protect the will of the people, it must be protected'
After 18 years of serving in at the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) vice-chairman Terry Tselane is leaving the organisation.
Tselane is stepping down months before the 2019 general elections.
He has been involved four national and provincial elections‚ four municipal elections and hundreds of by-elections.
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Tselane says he was saddened when Gwede Mantashe accused the IEC of being the enemy.
It was very saddening and unfortunate. There have been many low points but this was the one where I was very saddened and it really forced me to reflect on the many years I spent on the struggle for justice in the country.Terry Tselane, outgoing IEC Vice-Chairperson
It is very critical that the IEC be protected by all political parties.Terry Tselane, outgoing IEC Vice-Chairperson
We have to understand that an institution like the IEC is there basically to protect the will of the people and not to protect the politicians and political parties. So it is important to protect the will of the people and to protect the IEC is to protect the will of the people.Terry Tselane, outgoing IEC Vice-Chairperson
