IEC deputy CEO Masego Shiburi says“National and provincial elections are going smoothly through out the country even though some polls had a shortage of ballots papers in some of the voting stations.
He further said the electoral commission remains highly satisfied and encouraged with voting progress throughout the country.

He further denied that the ink on the thumb cannot be removed after voting and that there are people who voted twice. But if they can be identified they will be prosecuted
