Johannesburg - The allocation of voting delegates for the ANC's national elective conference in Mangaung later this year was decided on Tuesday, the party said.

A team from the national executive council agreed on the formula that was used to allocate the last 416 branch voting delegates into the final total of 4 500 delegates, spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.

The best-represented province would be President Jacob Zuma's home province KwaZulu-Natal with 974 delegates, followed by the Eastern Cape and Limpopo with 676 and 574 respectively.

Gauteng would have 500 voting delegates, Mpumalanga 467, the Free State 324, and North West 234.

Only 176 voting delegates would come from the Northern Cape while 178 would come from the Western Cape.

The branch voting delegates comprised 91.2% of the total.

The remaining 8.8% were members of the NEC, and the party's provinces and leagues.

Forty-five would attend on behalf of the ANC Women's League and the same number for the Youth and Veterans Leagues.

Eighty-two members of the ANC NEC would attend and 180 from the provinces.

"These allocations total 4 500 delegates, who will participate as voting delegates in the 53rd ANC National Conference in December," Mthembu said.
