African National Congress (ANC) Secretary General Gwede Mantashe says the success of the ruling party’s national congress will rest on the push for unity in the organisation.
He was briefing the media on the outcomes of the last National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Johannesburg on Monday afternoon.
The ANC will hold its hotly contested elective congress later in December, with at least seven candidates vying for the party’s top post.
Disgruntled ANC groups in several provinces are challenging the outcomes of provincial conferences in court.
Mantashe says unity will be the bedrock of the organisation beyond their congress.
Meanwhile, the registration of delegates for the ANC Limpopo PGC is underway in Polokwane.
The council will announce the province’s preferred presidential candidate.
Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma are the front-runners.
The delegates have begun trickling in coming from branches in five Limpopo regions.
Deputy Secretary General Jessie Duarte is expected to address about 600 delegates during the PGC.
