PRETORIA - ANC Chairperson Gwede Mantashe says dissatisfied political parties, must follow the right procedure when lodging complaints about the election results.

Smaller political parties are unhappy with the election results so far, citing irregularities with the voting process.

They are planning legal action against the IEC. 

"If there are incidents, there are processes and procedures to follow and to deal with them, sit-ins will not resolve them," said Mantashe.

"There's a PLC working with IEC, so they must deal with them. In the PLC (Party Liaison Committee) all parties are represented," added Mantashe.

Mantashe also said he has no reason to question the integrity of the IEC.

“I was in eleven polling station, I made my own observation and I have no reason to question the professional outlook of the IEC," he said.
