The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says that it will continue to make decisions based on the law and not on popular sentiment. The Commission was reacting to the judgment of the Constitutional Court handed down today which found that on the basis of Section 11.2 of the Electoral Act, it possesses the statutory powers to reopen the candidate registration and amend the electoral timetable in the way it has done. The Democratic Alliance however remains suspicious of the Commission’s motives.
