ANC FS conference gets under way

2013-05-11 13:53

The Free State ANC’s elective conference started today after the previous conference was found to be illegal.

Hundreds of party delegates and provincial and national leaders of the party gathered at the Phakisa Raceway near Welkom for the conference.

Various speakers from organisations gave messages of support and called on party members to put their differences aside and work for a united ANC.

Youth leaders commended Free State Premier Ace Magashule for what he had done for the youth.

An SA Students’ Congress representative commended the ANC leadership for helping youth to get access to higher education. He was referring to some 7 000 student bursaries the Free State government had given young people.

Speakers from SA National Civic Organisation, the Congress of SA Students, the SA Communist Party and the Congress of SA Trade Unions also pledged their support for the ANC.
