“Final evening the electoral fee has commenced some preliminary work, and so they’ve requested me for any documentation we now have,” he mentioned.
“I’ll comply and ensure we’ll ship each stage, and each step.”
Man mentioned the VEC had requested for the “emails and another documentation” that was offered to him regarding the matter.
