ANC in KZN prepare for local elections
Durban - The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday said it was going to ensure that the best candidates were selected and deployed for the 2011 local government elections.
"We should strengthen list guidelines and processes for public representatives to enhance democratic participation… and involve the broader community in our candidate selection processes," the provincial executive committee said in a statement.
"We also need to ensure that we attract people with skills and ensure the broadest possible sectoral spread in our public representative corps."
The election was one of the topics discussed at the PEC meeting in Richards Bay on Monday. It said the party's national executive council had adopted guidelines on the nominations of candidates.
The province had started the process and was hoping to be finished by the end of the year.
"We believe that the current process will give us best candidates who will serve their wards and ensure service delivery."
