The Economic Freedom Fighters have condemned allegations that North West ANC members voted twice in today's elections. In the statement, the party called on the IEC to tighten security to ensure people are prevented from duplicating their ballots.
The EFF has released a statement condemning ANC members who allegedly voted more than once in today's general elections.
According to the statement, the members had removed the ink that had been used to mark their thumb and then went to a different voting station to illegally vote again.
One ANC councillor, identified as John Molubi, was reportedly caught in the act in Marikana were he supposedly voted at both Marikana High School and then the Marikana Commuity Hall.
The party condemned the act and called for the IEC to intervene and strengthen security to avoid a repeat of the situation:
" We call on the IEC to tighten its systems to avert this madness of ANC thugs. No one must vote more than once. The principle is one person one vote. It is not only illegal, but a direct assault on our democracy."
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the IEC has responded to claims that EFF leader Julius Malema violated the electoral code when he addressed voters outside of a Limpopo voting station. The IEC confirmed that the politician had not broken any laws.
