ANC provincial secretary tops Gauteng list

2014-05-16 20:15
Johannesburg - Gauteng ANC secretary David Makhura is headed to the provincial legislature, according to the party's provincial list, which was released by the Electoral Commission of SA (IEC) on Friday.

The list has 40 candidates for the legislature. It includes Premier Nomvula Mokonyane, former MECs, and several ordinary ANC MPLs.

The top 10 on the list are Makhura, Barbara Creecy (education), Ntombi Mekgwe (human settlements), Mandla Nkomfe (finance), Faith Mazibuko (safety), Lebogang Maile (sport), Hope Papo (health), Brian Hlongwa, Qedani Mahlangu (economic development), and Andrek Lesufi.

Mokonyane is number 11 on the list.

It was reported that she was being overlooked in favour of Makhura, former education MEC Barbara Creecy, and former finance MEC Mandla Nkomfe.

The ANC's head of provincial executive committee (PEC) communications Nkenke Kekana said Nkomfe would be released from the list.

"His name will be removed from that list as he would not be involved in the parliamentary processes of the legislature," he said on Friday.

Kekana said Nkomfe asked for his name to be removed after he decided to serve the ANC as a researcher instead.
