Potchefstroom - The ANC in the North West is happy with the level of stability reached in the province, it said on Thursday.

"We did an assessment of stability in the province and the conclusion was that stability is growing," provincial chairperson Supra Mahumapelo told reporters.

He said the last protest in the province was in March.

"For us, that is an indication that stability is growing in the province."

The second sign is the gradual growing of good interaction on issues of mandate and accountability between the provincial executive committee [PEC], provincial government, and local municipalities," he said.

Interactions between the alliance were also better than in the past.

Mahumapelo was speaking following a PEC meeting earlier in the week.

Among the matters discussed was a report on the African National Congress national executive committee's (NEC) meeting in Pretoria, at which preparations for next year's general election were discussed.

Mahumapelo said it was agreed that door-to-door campaigning needed to be intensified.

"Our work is going very well, but we need to intensify it."

The ANC provincial conference, where branches would nominate office bearers and those they wanted to see in Parliament, would be held at the Rustenburg Civic Centre on 25 October and 26 October.

"We also spoke about the regional conferences. We are now left with three regions [Dr Kenneth Kaunda, Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompadi, and Ngaka Modiri Molema].

"[The] PEC took a decision based on preparations which are going to be assessed tomorrow [Friday]; those conferences are scheduled to take place next week Saturday."

Mahumapelo also referred to the upcoming Tlokwe by-elections, which the ANC was confident of winning.
