Cosatu will back legitimate ANC candidates in municipal elections

2011-01-14 11:15

Cosatu said today that it was fully behind the candidates selected to represent the ANC in the local government elections later this year.

“As the trade union federation, we fully support the list process guidelines set out to determine legitimate candidates to represent the ANC in the upcoming local government elections,” said Cosatu KwaZulu-Natal provincial secretary Zet Luzipho.

He said Cosatu was concerned about people who wanted positions for personal interest.

“Some elements see these processes as an employment opportunity, not a dedication to the people as their servants. No one must abuse the ANC for his or her own beneficial interest.”

He said the ANC was not a labour broker or an employment agency.
