IEC fires officials for mishandling ballots

The IEC says a deputy presiding officer at a voting station in Benoni east of Johannesburg, has been removed following an investigation into the transfer of special votes. This after a video went viral on social media - showing a party agent assisting with the transfer of the special votes. The IEC in Ermelo, Mpumalanga, has also dismissed two IEC officials after the EFF complained that a ballot box has been tampered with.
