ANC set to announce premier candidates

Johannesburg - ANC secretary Gwede Mantashe has said the premiers of eight provinces, including Gauteng, will be selected from the three submissions from each of the party's provincial structures, Beeld reported on Tuesday.

"The ANC will in terms of a resolution taken earlier, designate a premier from the three candidates. We discussed the names yesterday [Sunday] and they cannot be changed," he was quoted as saying.

"We accepted two important principles today [Monday]. First is that in each province if there is a man appointed premier, there has to be a female speaker."

All legislatures must also have 50% of women in their executive councils.

Mantashe's comments follow speculation that Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane would be re-appointed premier, despite not being recommended by the ANC in the province.

It was previously reported that ANC provincial secretary David Makhura, former education MEC Barbara Creecy and former finance MEC Mandla Nkomfe were the three names for the province.

However the Gauteng ANC said on Thursday that Nkomfe asked that his name be removed from the list.

Makhura, Creecy and former housing MEC Ntombi Mekgwe were the top three names on the province's list.

The party is holding a briefing later on Tuesday where the premier candidates were expected to be announced.
