Meanwhile, the EC has clarified reports that a different set of accreditation is needed by Journalists who wish to be at the collation centres to monitor the counting of the ballots.

“I don’t know of any segregation of accreditation where somebody is allowed to go to the collation centre and others are not allowed to go to the collation centre.

“What I do know is that there is media accreditation for the media to cover the elections”.
