Durban - The Independent Electoral Commission must deliver a credible and fair election, the IFP said on Tuesday.
IFP president Mangosuthu Buthelezi said in a statement that in achieving democracy South Africa won a shared heritage for all people.
“The gains of democracy must be protected and developed,” Buthelezi said.
Buthelezi said national and provincial elections had been bedevilled by fraud, which was only exposed after electoral results had expired.
“Even though the discovery of such fraud could no longer be used to challenge the electoral outcome, it should have formed the basis of investigations by police.”
Buthelezi claimed that the ruling party had used and abused state resources to promote its political position and electoral fortunes.
“The IFP supports the work of the IEC and we recognise the importance of the IEC's integrity.
“We cannot turn a blind eye to the increasing challenge of delivering a free and fair election in South Africa,” he said.
