Johannesburg - The ANC will hold a press briefing on Tuesday at 11:00 on the outcome of its special NEC meeting, but remains tight-lipped on whether the meeting was also about former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema

The party's national executive committee met on Monday in Pretoria to discuss preparations for the party's national policy conference, to be held later this month, but according to the Sunday Times and the Sunday Independent the meeting was also about Malema.

Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, African National Congress treasurer general Mathews Phosa, and deputy secretary general Thandi Modise were against Malema's expulsion, the Sunday Times reported.

Youth league spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy was quoted as saying: "We are expecting the matter to be discussed and resolved in the executive meeting on Monday."

According to the Sunday Independent Malema did not enjoy popular support among NEC members, while President Jacob Zuma did.

ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu refused to comment on the reports, saying: "The agenda of the meeting is private and we are not commenting on newspaper reports."
