As the 2016 local government elections kicked off on Wednesday, with citizens milling to the polls countrywide, the Independent Electoral Commission’s results operations centre in Pretoria also began its duties.
The centre – located at the Tshwane Events Centre – gleamed with the IEC’s signature blue colours, as media and officials trickled in, waiting for the first set of results to appear on big screens.
According to the IEC, the majority of the country’s 22 612 voting stations reported being open on time at 7am, reportedly with strong turnouts.
