Vincent Alexander said ( about Commission ) : “The Representation of the People Act did not allow for this recount that we are doing; it is the said Constitution, by virtue of Article 162, so that the determination of these matters in a common-law system is only final if a Court decides,” “The view that we held by virtue of what’s in that Order, an Order which was agreed to by the Commission is that we are not doing a mere numerical recount; that we in fact going to have observation beyond the numbers, and we are having observations beyond the numbers,” External link

I have a difficulty with working in tents in the yard. I think it poses a serious security problem and is likely to lead us into the kind of mob behaviour…..We have to avoid that.

The first one I mentioned the last time –- that is, how long it will take to count a box; the second reason he arrived at that, there was a proposal from Commissioner Benn, in which he said that each of the operations should be covered by two commissioners.

Vincent Alexander said ( about Commission ) : “The CEO, who they’re targeting, has to get instructions from the Commission. The last instruction he had was to do house-to-house [registration]; the Commission has not given him new instructions. The court didn’t speak directly to him so he cannot, because the court said ‘follow the Constitution’ change what he is doing on his own.

My own disposition is that we have the standing order, in terms of what the agenda looks like; the chairman may seek to put items on the agenda and the members of the commission may also, with prior notice, pass amendments for issues to be placed on the agenda; and when the meeting starts, the agenda is adopted,” External link

I have a difficulty with working in tents in the yard. I think it poses a serious security problem and is likely to lead us into the kind of mob behaviour…..We have to avoid that.
