Voters Can Wear Anything on 7 May

The IEC says voters are allowed to go to voting stations donning political party-branded regalia

The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says voters are allowed to go to voting stations donning political party-branded regalia.

Speaking from the national results operations centre in Pretoria, IEC chairperson, Pansy Tlakula, pointed out that, "We have heard in the past that voters are not allowed to wear T-shirts of their political parties. The law doesn't say that."

She explains: "Voters can wear anything. Imagine if a voter turns up with a T-shirt of a political party then we say to them 'go back and dress properly'. How many would we turn back?"
