The African Union (AU) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) have declared South Africa’s fourth democratic elections “free and fair”.
SADC observer mission leader, Balefi Tsie, says the elections were conducted in compliance with guidelines adopted by all SADC countries. However, Tsie says the SADC is concerned about campaigning during election day.
The AU observer mission leader, Salim Ahmed Salim, says they did note that there were minor logistical problems as well as irregularities; however none have affected the voting process adversely.
