The Democratic Alliance (DA) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in the rural Moses Kotane Local Municipality in Mogwase in the North West say the IEC needs to improve the system of voting.
Both parties say they are disappointed about the way the IEC ran the national elections on Wednesday.
They say their inefficiency might have contributed to the alleged identified irregularities.
The EFF in Mogwase says it has launched several objections, with the aim of taking action against the IEC.
Democratic Alliance caucus leader in the Municipality, Jonathan Sekomeng says, “This is for us to learn. It seems everything is ready for elections, but come the elections day it seems as if even the election staff were told what to do. So the results can wave the other side.”
EFF Sub-regional co-ordinator Tshepang Madisa adds, “The IEC, the body that we thought is independent then it’s the one that is disappointing us. I don’t have any trust with the IEC anymore. There is several objections that we have made in various voting stations. If it can course a re-run let it be.”
