ANCYL wants more representation

2010-08-27 14:55
Midrand - The ANC Youth League wants 70% representation on the ANC's national general council (NGC) so it can influence decisions, ANCYL president Julius Malema said on Friday.

"We want to constitute 70% of your NGC so we can influence decisions," he told Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, who is also ANC deputy president, on the last day of the ANCYL NGC in Midrand.

The ANCYL intends pushing for adoption of its policy on nationalisation of mines at the ANC's NGC in Durban next month.

Malema denied that the ANCYL would campaign at this conference for the removal of President Jacob Zuma and ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe.

"We are not working on removing anybody. It's not going to happen now," he said, adding that the NGC was not the place to remove people.

Earlier this year, alliance partner the Congress of SA Trade Unions, expressed that there were plans to remove Zuma and Mantashe at the NGC.

Malema also said that despite what was written in the media, most agreed with the ANCYL on its programmes. "As individuals, most of them are agreeing with us," he said.

Malema hoped that the ANC and the Young Communist League had accepted his apology for members shouting down YCL national secretary Buti Manamela at the NGC on Wednesday night.

Cosatu had already accepted the apology, he said, describing the incident as "minor".
