ActionSA's Mashaba accuses IEC of sabotage in row over missing name on ballot

JOHANNESBURG - ActionSA will begin arranging its lawful test against the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) over the shortfall of its name on the voting form paper. 

Just the party's logo shows up on the voting form, with the IEC saying that this was on the grounds that ActionSA stated "not relevant" when requested to give an abbreviation or shortening from its name. 

Party pioneer, Herman Mashaba, has would not assume liability for neglecting to fill that part in, saying that the mark on the voting form last week was an error by one of ActionSA's competitors. 

The previous Johannesburg civic chairman said that the refusal to look for arrangements with ActionSA by the IEC was a detriment to his allies as well as the commission's own command to convey free and reasonable decisions. 

Mashaba said that there was nothing in law that permitted the IEC to follow up for the benefit of his party. 

"That is their protected liability to guarantee that South Africa should have free and reasonable races. Suppose that they were assumed the best, and I'm letting you know I'm not assuming the best about them, this is an intentional undermining of IEC working with the ANC."
