Bloemfontein - The ANC was expected to announce who had been nominated to stand for its top six leadership posts at its elective conference in Mangaung on Monday afternoon.

Singing delegates welcomed the African National Congress's electoral commission onto the stage, in a large tent erected on the University of the Free State's sports grounds.

North West and Limpopo delegates sang songs expressing support for President Jacob Zuma, with most delegates holding up two fingers, signifying they wanted him to serve a second term as ANC leader.

A splinter group sang "shower songs", referring to Zuma's utterances during his rape trial in 2005. He was acquitted of the charges.

The party's electoral commission said the nomination process was successful in all provinces.

The second day of the African National Congress's elective conference in Mangaung got under way on Monday with closed discussions about the credentials of delegates who would nominate the party's top six leaders.

The ANC adjourned the conference around midnight on Sunday because of a dispute over the matter.
