The case filed by the 11 disgruntled ANC members, challenging the legitimacy of the Eastern Cape Provincial Executive Committee, will on Tuesday resume at the Grahamstown High Court.
The members want the court to annul the results of the chaotic Provincial Elective Conference held in East London last month.
Oscar Mabuyane was elected as the chairperson of the province taking over from Phumulo Masualle.
The group argue that the new Provincial Executive Committee was elected after many delegates left the venue after a violent brawl broke out that left a number of delegates injured.
Eastern Cape ANC secretary Lulama Ngcukayithobi says they are ready to defend the organisation.
“The African National Congress is very ready, of course the appearance or people that have sought court review of the conference proceedings are the very same people that after seeing that they are losing the conference have undertaken the process of the court.”
