East London - The Regional Executive Committee (REC) of the ANC in the Buffalo City Metropolitan region in the Eastern Cape supports President Jacob Zuma for re-election at the Mangaung conference, it said on Sunday.

"As the REC we resolved to support leadership continuity with change in few positions where some comrades couldn't assist the organisation to meet its objectives," said regional secretary Mkhawuleli Maleki.

"In our assessment, we agreed to support the leadership stability shown by collective leadership led by President Jacob Zuma leadership in the past five years and we think the status quo must remain where possible."

He said that the political administration of the ANC, in the hands of secretary general Gwede Mantashe, has improved.

"In essence, we support the position adopted by the provincial executive committee because we see that as the province we are beginning to start a process of reclaiming our political space in the national political arena, so with that principle, we agree with the provincial executive committee [PEC] to retain Cde Zuma as the president as we have gained a lot under his leadership.

"We prioritise unity and cohesion, we agree that when we engage in all these issue, we must do so in such a way that unity and cohesion prevails."
