Bloemfontein - Delegates at the ANC's national conference were finalising resolutions on constitutional amendments, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Thursday.

Constitutional amendments was the "most difficult" discussion because it dealt with issues such as discipline, Mantashe told reporters in Bloemfontein.

The amendments were proposed by the organisational renewal policies at the ANC’s national policy conference earlier this year.

More time would also be spent on discussing documents on economic transformation.

"The others [policies] are straight forward," he said.

The morning of the last day of conference will be spent with report-backs and adoption of all policies recommended.

Second phase

On Wednesday evening the party had adopted the policy documents on organisational renewal and strategy and tactics, which included the "second phase of the transition".

Once all policies are adopted the ANC will announce its new 80-member national executive committee.

President Jacob Zuma will then give his closing address.

Mantashe said conference was estimated to finish around 15:30.

ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said there would be no lunch break on Thursday.

Delegates would be given a packed lunch to take with them on the road home, he said.

Some delegates travelling far decided to leave early on Thursday morning instead of waiting for the conference to officially close.

Many said they would listen to Zuma's closing address on the radio.
