The Electoral Court has declared the Mariental Rural constituency regional council election as well as the Stampriet, Koës and Aroab local authority elections null and void after irregularities after the Electoral Commission of Namibia asked the court to set aside the polls, in which election officials used incorrect ballot papers and one polling point was closed too early. Future Media News contacted ECN Communications and Marketing Manager, Lina Ndengu, who said they don’t know yet when the elections will be re-run.
