ANC conference experiences further delays

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The African National Congress National Conference is experiencing further delays with reports that voting for the additional members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) has temporarily been halted. This is seemingly due to mistakes on the ballot paper where a number of candidates are not reflected with others reflected twice.

The ANC’s newly elected president Cyril Ramaphosa has urged delegates at the governing party’s 54 national congress to elect committed and credible individuals into the national executive committee.

Delegates are expected to elect eighty strong NEC members. NEC is the highest decision making body between conferences.

Meanwhile, a plenary session of the conference is expected to convene where the issue of 68 unaccounted for votes related to the secretary general position is to be finalised.

Discussions in the various commissions on the policy documents are proceeding.

The NEC results were expected to be finalised by Wednesday morning with the conference expected to wrap up with the inaugural address by newly-elected resident Cyril Ramaphosa.
