Johannesburg - The Eastern Cape ANC Women's League has nominated President Jacob Zuma for a second term, its provincial executive committee said on Monday.

"In our meeting we decided to support Comrade President Jacob Zuma for a second term as the president of the ANC," the PEC said in a statement.

It also supported the African National Congress's deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe for a second term, unless he decided to contest the presidency of the party.

It wanted secretary general Gwede Mantashe to serve another term, and chairperson Baleka Mbete.

The provincial PEC did not nominate anyone for the positions of deputy secretary general or treasurer general.

"We are of the view that there is a need for change in the positions of the deputy secretary general and that of the treasurer general."

Mathews Phosa is treasurer general and Thandi Modise is deputy secretary general at the moment.

The PEC wanted equal representation of women in all the ANC structures.

"Therefore, we are calling on all ANC branches to observe the 50/50 policy in identifying delegates to the national conference in Mangaung.

"To be specific, if a branch has four delegates, we expect two of those to be females and the other two to be male comrades."

Nominations for candidates for the ANC's top leadership positions opened at the weekend.

The national elections take place in Mangaung in December at the ANC's national conference.
