Johannesburg - The Electoral Commission (IEC) on Saturday vowed to oppose any legal action relating to alleged irregularities that occurred in the 2019 general elections.
Earlier this week, a group of smaller political parties raised issue with certain discrepancies they claim occurred on election day including double voting, vanishing ink and lost ballots.
The parties then wrote a letter to the IEC demanding an independent audit into the election results well as a “rerun” of the elections.
They threatened to approach the Electoral Court if they received an unsatisfactory response from the IEC.
The group of more than 10 political parties included the likes of the African Peoples' Convention (APC), National Freedom Party, African Transformation Movement (ATM), Black First Land First, Land Party, and the Socialist Workers Revolutionary Party (SWRP).
