Cape Town - The ANC will nominate its chairperson Baleka Mbete as National Assembly Speaker, ruling party secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Tuesday.

Mantashe spoke after the ANC's first caucus meeting of the fifth democratic Parliament where the Assembly's top four positions were announced.

"Comrade Baleka Mbete will be the Speaker of Parliament. Lechesa Tsenoli will be the Deputy Speaker of Parliament," Mantashe said.

Mbete will replace Max Sisulu after the official election process in the National Assembly on Wedneday.

Tsenoli replaces Nomaindia Mfeketo.

Stone Sizani would remain Chief Whip and Doris Dlakude his deputy.
