Bloemfontein - ANC delegates at the national elective conference (NEC) in Mangaung in the Free State will nominate candidates for the party's national executive committee on Tuesday.

The names of the ANC members nominated for NEC positions would be announced by the electoral commission in a plenary session.

Nominees would then be given the opportunity to withdraw their candidacy, if they so wished. Delegates would also be able to nominate candidates from the floor. This had to be supported by 25% of those at the conference.

Once the names had been finalised delegates would start voting.

Former ANC deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe had accepted nomination for an NEC position.

He lost out to President Jacob Zuma earlier on Tuesday for the position of party president.

Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi, Minister in the Presidency Trevor Manuel, and Jeremy Cronin all declined nomination.

On Monday, Andrew Mlangeni of the electoral commission said delegates would only be allowed to vote for 80 NEC members.

The 80 who received the most votes would be the newly elected NEC members. Half of them had to be women.

A delegate's ballot would not be counted if they voted for more than 80 people. Mlangeni said if there was a tie for the last NEC position, the candidate would be drawn from a hat.
