Johannesburg - Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) chairwoman Pansy Tlakula compromised the integrity of the commission and should be removed from her post, the Electoral Court found on Wednesday.

“In my view, the respondent compromised the independence and integrity of the commission to such an extent that her actions complained of constitute misconduct within the meaning of the Electoral Commission Act,” Judge Lotter Wepener said in his written ruling.

Tlakula's alleged misconduct, relating to a lease for office space for the commission, made her unsuitable for the office of commissioner and harmed the commission's values.

The court's recommendation would be passed on to parliamentary committee to decide on further steps.
