Johannesburg - The ANC's national executive committee (NEC) has given the Western Cape more time to complete its provincial nomination process, according to a report on Tuesday.

ANC Western Cape chairperson Marius Fransman told The New Age that the NEC had given the provincial leadership a deadline of Wednesday, after it failed to meet the Friday deadline.

"I don't know when the conference will take place but the latest will be either today [Tuesday] or tomorrow [Wednesday]. And we hope it will be successful this time," he told the newspaper.

The NEC was scheduled to brief the media on Tuesday on its meeting on Monday, where it was to discuss how to handle two provinces - Western Cape and Limpopo - missing their deadlines.

The New Age, quoting unnamed sources, said it understood that Limpopo had also been given an extension.

The Limpopo ANC had to cancel its conference on Friday night when a group of "violent hooligans" disrupted proceedings, forcing delegates to flee the venue, provincial spokesperson Makonde Mathivha said at the time.

He claimed the event was disrupted by a group wearing t-shirts with President Jacob Zuma's face printed on them.

The ANC in the Western Cape adjourned its event early on Saturday morning without endorsing candidates because of logistical delays, including the verification of branch delegates.

The conference reconvened at 21:0 on Saturday night, but failed again.
