Bloemfontein - The ANC cannot interpret the Constitutional Court judgment nullifying the Free State provincial executive conference (PEC), secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Friday.

"The reasons will be given to us on Tuesday, so we can't really interpret the judgment," he told reporters in Bloemfontein.

He said the African National Congress would comply.

"If we must re-run the conference we will re-run it."

In a judgment handed down in Johannesburg on Friday, the Constitutional Court declared the ANC's Free State provincial elective conference invalid.

"The provincial elective conference of Free State province of the African National Congress held at Parys on 21-23 June 2012 and its decisions and resolutions are declared unlawful and invalid," the court ruled.

The appeal had been brought by six Free State ANC members who challenged the validity of the PEC in court last month, claiming elections at branch level were irregular.

Mantashe said the decision would not have an effect on the national elective conference starting on Sunday in Mangaung.

"It means national conference is going ahead: provincial conference is nullified," said Mantashe.
