Cape Town - The ANC in the Western Cape will ask that the party's constitution be amended to give its top six officials an unbroken 10-year term, it was reported on Sunday.

Provincial African National Congress chairperson Marius Fransman told the Sunday Times this proposal would stabilise the ANC and would avoid bruising leadership contests every five years.

The proposal will be tabled at the party's 53rd elective conference in Mangaung next week.

Push for stability

"Some of us will be part of a very strong lobby that will push for stability. Part of that stability is that we must manage our elections better within the ANC, and in order to do that we need a 10-year trajectory of leadership," Fransman said.

He said the proposal would avoid the practices of factions purging those who did not agree with their leadership choices or positions ahead of conferences.

According to the report, the proposal would not affect members of the national executive committee, who would still be elected every five years.

The newspaper reported that Fransman's proposal could meet with stiff resistance in Mangaung, as it would affect the upward mobility of ambitious members.
