Johannesburg - The ANC in Gauteng on Saturday denied reports that provincial leaders instructed branches not to nominate President Jacob Zuma in its lists for Parliament.

On Friday, the Mail & Guardian reported that: "Zuma... has overwhelming support in most provinces but some Gauteng branches have allegedly been instructed by provincial leaders not to nominate him."

Gauteng African National Congress spokesperson Dumisa Ntuli said in a statement that no instruction was issued to marginalise Zuma.

"The PEC [provincial executive committee] condemned the inaccurate, false and distorted article in the Mail & Guardian that the organisation has issued instructions in the branches not to nominate... Zuma in the national list to Parliament," he said.

"The PEC can confirm that... [he] has [been] nominated overwhelmingly by branches of the ANC in Gauteng."

A special meeting to receive the list of candidates to sit in Parliament and the provincial legislature next year was held on Friday.

The provincial list conference would take place on Thursday.
