OUTSIDE COURT: BCP officials with their lawyers

A case in which Botswana Congress Party (BCP) are challenging the introduction of the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) was today postponed to August 23rd.

During their brief appearance before Justice Lot Moroka of the Francistown High Court the two parties agreed to meet on June 26th to prepare for the case.

BCP is represented by Gabriel Komboni while Senior State Counsel Matlhogonolo Phuthego from the Attorney General’s Chambers represents the Independent Electoral Commission.

In an interview with The Voice, Phuthego stated that the BCP filed their papers late due to lack of resources.

Both IEC and BCP are to engage their experts to establish whether or not the machine can be hacked.
