'At the moment, I am not aware of any legal process against IEC'
The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) spokesperson Kate Baphela, says no legal action has been lodged against the commission by small political parties over election irregularities.
Baphela speaks to Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show, broadcasting live at the IEC result centre in Pretoria.
At the moment, I am not aware of any legal process or any matter that deals with an objection, so therefore as when that happens, the IEC will be able to deal with that.Kate Baphela, Spokesperson - IEC
She says the commission intends to complete its counting by the end of Friday.
We are looking comfortable at about 83% of votes counted and with the majority of provinces on the verge of completion, we are hoping that by early afternoon some areas would have completed counting.Kate Baphela, Spokesperson - IEC
She says the IEC is waiting for the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) to provide feedback on the issue of the election ink rubbing off thumbs.
As soon as that information is available, we will share it with South Africans and say what is the veracity of the report.Kate Baphela, Spokesperson - IEC
We are allowing law enforcement agencies to do their work and they will come back to us with a detailed report as well.Kate Baphela, Spokesperson - IEC
We are waiting for various reports so that when we release results, they are trustworthy and have integrity.Kate Baphela, Spokesperson - IEC
We are moving swiftly in terms of the various portions investigated. However, we are still within the law, and even if we release the results on Tuesday, we will still be within the law. Section 51 of the Electoral Act allows for seven days window period to release the results.Kate Baphela, Spokesperson - IEC
