IEC readiness

IEC's Masego Sheburi says 400 000 South Africans will cast special votes while 22 924 voting stations are prepared for May 8.

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) on Thursday in Pretoria briefed the media on its state of readiness for the May 8 elections.

IEC deputy chief executive officer Masego Sheburi says the commission has done everything in its power to make sure that South Africans will vote in conditions of convenience.

For those who are unable to reach voting stations, the IEC has made provisions to visit 400 000 South Africans to help them cast their special votes on 6-7 May.

The rest of us will be voting at our 22 924 voting stations across the country on the 8th of May. The voting stations will be open from 7am and close at 9pm.

Masego Sheburi, Deputy CEO - IEC

We are ready to receive all South Africans on election day so that they can make their choice and we will record their choice and translate that choice into representation in the legislatures or Parliament.

Masego Sheburi, Deputy CEO - IEC

Sheburi says South Africans will know which party will govern them for the next five years on the weekend following the elections.

The law requires the commission to release the results on an election no later than seven days from the date of voting.

Masego Sheburi, Deputy CEO - IEC

We are planning on releasing the results on Saturday afternoon and that time the South African public will know the party that has won the majority of votes.
