Johannesburg - Cosatu is expected to discuss its nominations for the ANC leadership during a special two-day central executive committee (CEC) meeting starting on Monday.

Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) spokesperson Norman Mampane said the CEC would meet at the trade union federation's headquarters in Johannesburg.

During Cosatu's national congress last month a heated debate ensued when some proposed that the discussion on the African National Congress' leadership be opened.

However, it was decided that the nominations would be discussed at a special CEC.

The National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) said that such a discussion should be done at the congress and not in a CEC.

The SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Satawu) agreed with Numsa.

Different occasion


Numsa said it was an important matter and there would not be another time when Cosatu delegates would be together.

They argued that the CEC could not make decisions for the congress.

The ANC is holding its national elective conference in Mangaung in December, which will see President Jacob Zuma stand for a second term.

But there are some in the ANC calling for a change in leadership and want Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe to take the top position.

The party had instructed its members and alliance partners - Cosatu and the SA Communist Party - to only open the nominations for the leadership in October.

During its special meeting Cosatu would also discuss key issues which were deferred to the CEC during its national congress.

This included the federation's political report, discussed at the congress.
