Ballot boxes found unoppened, therefore not counted! Anyone could vote without proof of address! Immigrants ID's and Perm Residence fast forwarded by Home Affairs! Many other irregularities, def NOT FREE or FAIR!
Thomas
yes
They were free and fair
Thabo
yes
Elections were free and fair.
Uri
no
It was a lot of parties that registered for the election but the president was already known. The government is not run by the politicians, I believe there is someone beyond the scene. There is no proper representation of the people as long as the politicians are talking about job creation instead of wealth distribution.

Election in the unitystate of South Africa can by default not be free and fair.

As several nations are forced into the state, how can it be free or fair?

The basis of the RSA is abusive and anti freedom.
Ronald
no
No elections can be free of violence in africa
Mondli

The real fraud isn't taking place at the voter level, it's at the level where the counting is done.
Ken
no
Obviously not. The ANC and ZANU PF are so much alike. corrupt and dirty that is the reason SA is falling g into the same void as they are
Sonja
no
The outcome of the election in 2019 waa already decided the year before. Everybody in the ANC knew that no matter WHAT the outcome, the ANC will steal it to ensure HIPPO EYES takes the lead. The IEC and HUMAN RIGHTS are just as corrupt as the ANC. Cannot fool everybody
Kholofelo
no
The fact that people can vote multiple times its problematic
Dolf

I too beleive that with all the accussations of double voting in many places and the fact that there were challenges with the ink on some people's fingers, all that adds to the raging debate. I do remember some people voting and been able to remove the ink very easily in my area. In such situations, anybody with the motive and opportunity could have used it.

I also believe that its time for SA to change its electoral act. We should be able to make it possible for people to vote for independent candidates. This thing of linking candidates to political parties is wrong and backward. Political parties can impose cadidtaes to the electorate and also remove them for no reasons shared by the electorates. Its time for change in SA. Lasltly, I also beleive that we should debate the need to limit the formation of political parties because its no becoming a money making scheme thats contaminating our political discourse. There should be a debate about this as well.

Elections 2019 was another opportunity for the circus that has become SA politics to continue with allegations of double voting and polling stations not opening or being ill equipped ride. SA is sliding into a decline of another failed African country where the masses get to vote but can be persuaded by a gift of a T-shirt and a packet of food to put parties in power where the public theft continues . If a person disagrees, then murders abound to shut them up! Not "free and fair", but a "free for all"!
Bruce
no
How many were bussed in from other areas
Judging their past record, I personally feel I can not trust the ANC.
