Johannesburg - The Independent Electoral Commission said it has received more than 70 complaints since it launched a pilot project to combat digital disinformation a month ago.
In a statement, the electoral body said on Sunday of the complaints received, 34 have been finalised and the remainder continued to be processed as they were received.
It also said there has been no instances of deliberate disinformation found by the committee set up to assess complaints.
"A number of the complaints, while not disinformation, have related to the tone and content of messages by political parties and contestants which have the ability to cause offence and/or undue political tension and rivalry.
"In these cases, the Electoral Commission is addressing these complaints with the relevant political parties."
