EFF calls out the IEC for unreliable online registration website

Published on

The EFF has noted that the IEC’s online voter registration website being offline was asserting the reality that it was failing, further highlighting its consistent unreliability.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) issued a statement on Wednesday, 15 September 2021, on the issue of the Independent Electoral Commission’s (IEC) online voter registration website being offline.

The EFF stated that it noted with disdain, the ongoing technical glitches that has rendered the IEC online voter registration website offline nationally. The opposition party conveyed that this was unacceptable given that there were only three days left before the on-site voter registration commenced over the weekend of Saturday, 18 September 2021 and Sunday, 19 September 2021.

It also pointed out that with the voter registration website being offline, the commission has consistently been unreliable with the process of getting people registered successfully without hassle over the past few days. The party believes that the website being offline at such a crucial time asserted the reality that the IEC is failing.
