No electioneering at NGC - Mantashe

2010-09-07 18:03

Johannesburg - The ANC's national general council (NGC) meeting later this month should not be treated as a launching pad for election campaigns, its secretary-general said on Tuesday.

"It is not focus of the NGC to launch election campaigns for 2012," Gwede Mantashe told reporters in Johannesburg.

The NGC meeting takes place in Durban from September 20 to 24 and is described by the ruling African National Congress as a "forum between national conferences where we review progress and challenges since the last conference".

Mantashe said the NGC was an assessment of the "work done".

It would receive reports on politics, finances, the state of the nation and organisational renewal.

The NGC was "not about launching election campaigns", Mantashe said.

However, he said this did not mean there would not be informal talk about leadership candidates for 2012, when the ruling party is scheduled to hold its next national conference.

"You cannot stop people from having views on candidates... you must allow people to talk," said Mantashe.
