Johannesburg - An ANC national executive committee (NEC) decision on any matter, including deployments to Limpopo to resolve nomination problems, is binding, spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said on Wednesday.

He was responding to comments made by ANC Limpopo provincial secretary Soviet Lekganyane that NEC members deployed to assist with reconvening the provincial nomination conference would not be welcome because they had vested interests.

"Such an irresponsible and un-ANC statement does not only undermine the decision of the NEC, it also fails to acknowledge that the NEC carries full responsibility for the success of the pending 53rd national conference," he said.

"It is not up to the provincial secretary Comrade Soviet Lekganyane to decide whether to accept the decision of NEC or not; the NEC will not be prevented from fulfilling its constitutional mandate."

He said the African National Congress reserved the right to investigate and institute charges against any member of the ANC "that instigates against" a standing decision of the organisation.

Nomination conferences


The ANC in Limpopo and the Western Cape were re-running their nomination conferences on Wednesday.

Limpopo cancelled their conference on Friday night when a group wearing T-shirts with President Jacob Zuma's face printed on them disrupted proceedings, forcing delegates to flee the venue, spokesperson Makonde Mathivha said at the time.

The party in the Western Cape's conference did not endorse candidates at the weekend because of logistical delays, including the verification of branch delegates.

The ANC's NEC then decided on Monday to allow the two provinces more time to conclude their nomination conferences.

The official deadline was originally November 30.

The provincial nomination conference allowed ANC members to nominate their preferred candidates for the party's leadership to be elected at the national conference in Mangaung later this month.
