Good Party secretary general, Brett Herron, has responded to accusations that the party violated the Electoral Act by not displaying the name of the publisher on its election posters.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) was allegedly seen removing the streetlamp posters arguing they don't display the name of the publisher and printer as required by the IEC.
Herron admitted that its party posters should have had the name of the publisher and printers displayed but says the move by the DA is a clear sign of fear.
I think it is frivolous and petty that they went to the lengths they did.— Brett Herron, Secretary general - Good Party
For me, it seems like there is a confession that there is some competition for them in the Western Cape because they only lodged a complaint for the Western Cape posters.— Brett Herron, Secretary general - Good Party
It is a legal requirement and yes we overlooked it.— Brett Herron, Secretary general - Good Party
Herron says it has engaged with the IEC and there was an agreement that the party can put a sticker on the posters identifying the publisher.
He says the party has been receiving good support on the ground.
