Johannesburg - Newly-elected ANC Youth League president Collen Maine is expected to address the league's national congress for the first time on Sunday.

Maine would deliver the closing addressing of the ANCYL's three-day congress, held in Midrand.

Before the congress concluded, the ANCYL would announce the 35 additional members of its national executive committee. Delegates nominated additional members on Saturday night.

The 35 were nominated unopposed.

Resolutions from the congress's commissions and the congress declaration would be presented.

ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe arrived at the congress on Sunday morning, where the "young lions" gave him a rousing welcome and sang "Gwede we love you so much".

ANC deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte was also in attendance.
