The Botswana National Front (BNF) secretary general, Moeti Mohwasa says the reason why their appeals committee for primary elections took long to resolve appeals was because the committee had to co-opt other members.
Mohwasa told Mmegi that the committee would start its job soon since there are cases that have been referred to the committee.
“The wards or constituencies that have been ordered to go for elections on August 4, 2018 are the ones which the election committee had to stop the elections because of certain irregularities.
For example we understand that at Borakalalo ward the ballot box was kicked and Boribamo east because one candidate’s name was not there on the ballot paper,” Mohwasa said.
The appeals committee would be forced to deliver judgment on Kanye South and Takatotakwane constituencies.
However, it is not clear on the number of appeals that the party has received since some members had engaged their attorneys to write formal complaints.
The BNF has started its second leg of primaries while complaints of the first ones are still pending.
