The ANC’s national working committee will be elected within the next two days, the party’s secretary-general Gwede Mantashe has said.

He was speaking to reporters at a gathering of the ANC’s national executive committee (NEC) in Pretoria.

“There are two issues (to be addressed during the meeting): political overview and the election of the national working committee,” he said.

The meeting in Pretoria was a continuance of the NEC’s first meeting in Durban, on January 11.

Mantashe said the ANC would hold its national lekgotla from January 30 to February 2.

“This is the midterm report about our performance in respect of the five priority areas.”

He said the lekgotla would be held to “streamline” the implementation of resolutions of the Mangaung conference.

Senior party members would meet the ANC Youth League next week, Mantashe said. He declined to elaborate.

“There is a meeting on Monday with the ANC Youth League. Full stop.”
