Goodluck Jonathan says SA should pioneer the move to electronic voting in Africa
One of South Africa's 2019 elections observers, former Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan, has urged South Africa to pioneer the move to electronic voting in Africa.
Jonathan visited the results operations centre in Tshwane on Friday after a week of visiting various poll stations.
Speaking on the non-availability of ballot papers, he said this was probably just an issue of movement.
The ballot papers is probably just a logistics of movement.Goodluck Jonathan, Former president of Nigeria
He believes most African continents will begin to take on electronic voting within the next 10 years.
That should be the target. We expect South Africa to take the lead because in terms of development of technology, South Africa is still the top in the continent.Goodluck Jonathan, Former president of Nigeria
Observers have declared the 2019 voting process free and fair and Jonathan has asserted his confidence in the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).
He says reports of multiple voting and other reported irregularities will not affect the overall credibility of this year'selections.
If 20 people do double voting, yes it has contaminated the election but is that sufficient to bring the issue of credibility to the electoral process? They are investigating and I am quite happy that the IEC is very responsive to this mater, they are working with police.Goodluck Jonathan, Former president of Nigeria
