PAC claims irregularities in voting results
The PAC has called for election results to be delayed in order to probe irregularities.
JOHANNESBURG - The Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) says it has spotted irregularities in voting results from at least four provinces.
The party is calling for a delay in the official announcement of results this evening, to allow for these and other problems to be properly probed.
The PAC's deputy secretary general, Bennett Joko, has shown Eyewitness News photocopies of official results from voting stations in the Western Cape, Mpumalanga, Gauteng and the Eastern Cape, where he says the PAC national votes were credited to the National Freedom Party.
The matter has been raised with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).
The PAC has drawn 0.21 percent of the national vote, which is a hare's breathe off winning a Parliamentary seat and retaining its deposit.
Joko says that by law the IEC has seven days to call the election.
He is calling for more time for the PAC and others to investigate the irregularities more widely.
