The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) secretary-general Godrich Gardee says the party will leave the results process to the Independent Electoral Commission and that it has confidence in the IEC's integrity.
There have been questions surrounding the electoral commission's security following the arrest of a small number of voters accused of double voting, as well as an investigation into the inedible ink used to avid this.
Godrich says elections are said to be free and fair, not 'correct and true'.
Free and fair - fair means that you give space to things that are unintended consequences of the processes.— Godrich Gardee, Secretary-general - EFF
We will leave that process to the IEC. It will keep us informed from time to time and we have got no problem with the decisions of the IEC.— Godrich Gardee, Secretary-general - EFF
He says the electoral commission is one of the least captured institutions in the country.
We have got confidence on the credibility and integrity of the IEC. It is one of the least captured institutions in South Africa, hence it won't be appearing in the Zondo Commission.— Godrich Gardee, Secretary-general - EFF
