ANC 2017 Elective Conference

Claims of Top Six 'missing votes' at #ANC54 may delay NEC election

Apparent discrepancies in the voting process may cause another delay to the African National Congress (ANC) conference.

The steering committee now in charge of the event is meeting to discuss claims that some votes for the party's leadership disappeared.

One of the main issues of contention is around the secretary-general position and the number of votes Senzo Mchunu and Ace Magashule received.

Clement Manyathela spoke to Associate Editor at Tiso Black Star Ranjeni Munusamy about the impact this may have on the NEC voting process.

There are 4788 people who have the credentials to cast ballots but you will remember that when the elections commission official was announcing the results yesterday, the first thing she said was 4 708 people voted.

There are talks of a recount, she says.

The 68 votes are missing for all six categories, but there are there possible explanations for the 68 missing votes. ... But the rumor going around is that these votes were set aside and sealed, but if that was the case then the election commission should have informed plenary because otherwise, it throws the credibility of the entire elections process into doubt.

Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso Blackstar

There could be delays, but I think what they are trying to do now is before they can go into the NEC elections they need to resolve this matter about the credibility of the voters roll so they know how many people can and will vote for the NEC.
