ANC task team begins list probe

2011-06-07 18:04
Johannesburg - An ANC task team is set to begin probing irregularities in the party's list process, the team's chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said on Tuesday.

The team was set to start its work in KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday.

"We acknowledge that despite the great success of this process, there were difficulties in some areas," Dlamini-Zuma said in a statement.

"The task team will be working hard to address these problems, and to ensure that people serving in our local, district and metropolitan municipalities are truly those who have been chosen with the participation of the communities."

The ANC subjected its candidates for councillors to scrutiny by the communities they were meant to serve for the first time ahead of the 2011 local elections.

Dlamini-Zuma said the new process had "greatly improved" the party's candidate selection process.

"The people have put forward candidates with integrity, who are capable and committed to building better communities," she said.

The setting up of the team was announced by President Jacob Zuma ahead of the election. This was after protests and court action against the party by its own members who charged that the process was flawed.

Dlamini-Zuma said the task team would visit other provinces. The timing would be announced in due course.

The team comprises ANC members Naledi Pandor, Ellen Molekane, James Stuart, Lehlohonolo Moloi, Nonzwakazi Sigxashe and Archie Whitehead.
