ANC KZN STATEMENT OF THE PROVINCIAL WORKING COMMITTEE

The ANC Provincial Working Committee held an ordinary meeting on Monday, 11th April 2016 at Dr Pixley Ka Seme House, ANC Provincial Office.

 The Provincial Working Committee considered and made decisions on number of tasks relating to the Local Government Elections campaign and organizational program in general.
Open weekend voter registration

The Provincial Working Committee salutes all ANC activists and volunteers who spent inordinate amount of time on the ground interacting with our people. The open weekend registration provided the movement with an opportunity to intensify our contact with the masses of our people.

We were very proud and elated seeing the number of people who paid visit to various voting stations to register and confirm their status for Local Government Elections. We are deeply indebted to the outstanding work of our volunteers who painstakingly organized hundreds thousands of our people.

The amount of work our cadres did over the past weekend confirmed in no uncertainty terms that we are more than ready for Local Government Elections. Over the next two weeks we are concluding the selection processes and entering into a period of massive elections campaign with all our candidates endorsed by the masses of our people.

Constitutional Court Judgment

The Provincial Working Committee also considered and reflected on the implications of the unanimous judgment of the Constitutional Court delivered by the Chief Justice. The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal respects the judgment of our apex court which is the creation of the current constitutional dispensation which we fought for in many years of selfless struggle.

We also noted and unconditional accepted the apology of President Zuma and his explanation relating to the Constitutional Court outcomes. We strongly reject with contempt it deserves the call by our legendary opponents and those within our ranks, including some religious leaders, for the President to step down.

This coalition against President Zuma has naked intentions to weaken and tarnish the glorious image of the ANC as the leader of the national democratic revolution.

We call on President Zuma to focus on his important tasks of leading our people on a journey to a national democratic society. These masses fully understand that whatever the setbacks of the moment, nothing can stop our movement from its historic tasks.  They have a hope of a glorious and prosperous future forever inspired by the Latin saying: Gloria est consequenda – Gloria must be sought after!
