Johannesburg - Western Cape ANC provincial secretary Marius Fransman has declined a nomination to the party's national executive committee, he said on Sunday.

While it was an "immense honour" to serve on the NEC, he declined in order to "fully focus on dislodging" the Democratic Alliance from power in the Western Cape in the 2014 elections.

"It is in the best strategic interest of the ANC Western Cape that as chairperson I rather remain fully committed to intensifying our programme in the province which includes unifying and rebuild our movement."

Fransman said it was in the "broader interest" of the party for him to lead the provincial organisation against the DA.

Fransman said the ANC in the province would be well represented by other nominated individuals.
