Johannesburg - The North West ANC wants President Jacob Zuma re-elected for a second term at the party’s national elective conference in Mangaung in December.

The province made a decision at a provincial executive committee (PEC) meeting which discussed the ANC national executive committee's (NEC) decision to open leadership nominations and allocate delegates to provinces.

The PEC will propose to branches that all the party’s top six officials be retained with Zuma at the helm for purposes of "unity and continuity", provincial spokesperson Kenny Morolong said.

A list of proposed additional candidates for the ANC NEC will be circulated to branches and regions to make their input before a final decision is made.

Morolong, however, urged branches to "independently apply their minds having discussed challenges that we face as a movement" and answer questions about the "kind of ANC we need to meet these challenges.”

Branches should also decide on the type of leaders the ANC needs to promote unity, said Morolong.

The North West has got a strong presence of Zuma support, though the province is torn between the incumbent and his deputy Kgalema Motlanthe.

It's one of the provinces that has decided to back Motlanthe for a deputy president, provided he doesn't challenge Zuma.

A smaller section of the North West, however, supports ANC Youth League calls for a leadership change.

Morolong said branches would have a final say.

"ANC branches should be allowed without pressure or imposition to nominate their preferred candidates for the NEC, guided by our policy discussion documents."

The PEC will convene branch general meetings to discuss leadership preferences. The North West has been allocated space for 234 voting delegates to Mangaung.
