Nelson Mandela Bay is the will of the people - IEC

UPDATE: The ANC is not lodging an objection with the IEC over the ballot papers.

Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) vice chair, Terry Tselane, says he's confident that there's nothing untoward about ballot papers found in the hotly contested Nelson Mandela Bay.

The ANC however is not convinced and according to Tselane, will lodge a Section 65 objection.

There will be an official investigation, but the ballots had already been counted and fed into the system. I don't understand why they were dumped.

Terry Tselane, IEC vice chair

We are confident that results of Nelson Mandela Bay reflect the will of the people.

Tselane said the IEC is the only election management body in the world that has been called on to help in other countries like the DRC, Burundi and Madagascar.

John Robbie spoke to Tselane from the results centre in Pretoria about some of his concerns leading up to the elections, listen here:
