Johannesburg - The Limpopo ANC will meet the party's nomination deadline and hold its provincial conference in Polokwane on Friday, it said.

"The programme for the nominations conference will be officially opened by the provincial chairperson, comrade Cassel Mathale, and proceedings officiated by the designated elections agency representatives," it said in a statement.

The African National Congress in Limpopo postponed its nomination conference at the last minute on Tuesday evening to allow branches to conclude their branch general meetings (BGMs).

Almost 70 branches in the province's five regions had not held BGMs, which would exclude them from the nomination conference.

The branches were given until Friday to hold BGMs.

This is also the national executive committee's (NEC) deadline for all provinces to have held their nomination conferences -- a cut-off which has already been extended by four days.

On Wednesday, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe said if the province did not hold its nomination conference by November 30 it would forfeit its right to nominate its preferred candidates.

The ANC holds its elective conference in Mangaung next month.

During nomination conferences, delegates nominate candidates for the ANC's new 86 member national executive committee (NEC) and the top six positions.

Provinces are divided about whether to support President Jacob Zuma or Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe for the presidency of the party.

Four names have emerged as the favourites for deputy president.

The provinces calling for a second term for Zuma have endorsed Motlanthe or NEC member Cyril Ramaphosa.

Those who wanted Zuma replaced have backed Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale or ANC treasurer general Mathews Phosa.
