Johannesburg - Initial reports suggest the majority of ANC Woman's League members want Jacob Zuma back as party president, the organisation said on Saturday.

"There is consensus among seven of the nine provinces who support continuity within the organisation, and therefore support Comrade Jacob Zuma for the position of president," spokesperson Troy Martens said.

She said these preliminary trends were noted at an African National Congress Woman's League national executive meeting in Boksburg on Friday.

The president of the league, Angie Motshekga, recently spoke to members across the country.

The members that favour Zuma in the position of ANC president - when elections for the position take place in Mangaung in December - also want Kgalema Motlanthe to return to his position as deputy president and Gwede Mantashe to remain as secretary general.

Martens said the Gauteng province did not contribute to the league's initial discussions as it was busy preparing for its provincial conference.

"Limpopo province differs in opinion as to who should be nominated in these positions."

The official nomination list would still be discussed at regional and provincial level before being submitted to the national executive council.

Martens said the league wanted three out of the top six officials of the ANC to be women.

"The ANCWL is an advocate of the 50 - 50 principal."
