NFP to hold elective conference

2011-11-30 13:12
Durban - The IFP breakaway National Freedom Party will elect its leaders on Saturday, the party said on Wednesday.

“Our elective conference will start on Saturday and our leaders will be elected on that day,” party spokesperson Zanele Cele said.

The party is currently led by Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi. She assumed the leadership role when the party was formed earlier this year after splitting from the Inkatha Freedom Party.

A first attempt to hold the conference 40 days after the May 18 municipal elections was postponed as the party's branches had not yet been established.

Cele said the conference would take place at the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Pietermaritzburg campus and would be attended by about 2 600 delegates.

The NFP was formed by IFP members earlier this year after disputes arose over campaigning for leadership positions in the IFP.

As a result, the IFP gained an outright majority in only two municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal on May 18. It controlled 29 municipalities before the elections.
