Johannesburg - Special voting kicked off on Monday with electoral commission chairwoman Pansy Tlakula expressing confidence that general elections would proceed smoothly on Wednesday.

She said special votes were under way countrywide and home visits were also being conducted.

“Elections have started in earnest and we are ready for Wednesday,” she told the media after casting her special vote at the Orange Grove Primary School in Johannesburg.

Tlakula took the time to clarify the confusion related to the campaigning by political parties over the next two days.

She said parties could campaign until midnight on Tuesday but no political event would take place on Wednesday.

“Special voting days are not regarded as (official) voting days as proclaimed by the president. Campaigning can take place until then (Tuesday midnight),” she said. - Sapa
