The Election Monitoring Network (EMN) is concerned about reports that members of political parties are working for the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in the Northern Cape.
The network is urging the IEC to investigate the allegations and publicise the findings. It says that a failure to do so may lead to some political parties rejecting the election results after the elections.
Speaking on behalf of the network, Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, Thabo Makgoba, said: “We plead with the IEC to uphold the integrity that has guided its operations in the past maintain the transparency that has been its hallmark.”
