KZN ANC wants rigorous induction

2012-05-09 06:49

 The KwaZulu-Natal ANC wants a more rigorous process to induct new members into the party.

“The selfish pursuit of self-interest and factional interest are now placed above the interest of the entire organisation and the people as a whole,” reads part of a document to be discussed at the party’s policy conference in June.

ANC provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala said a new rigorous induction process for members should include extending the probation period to six months, from one week, and require prospective members to undergo “compulsory political membership induction”.

Zikalala said the party should also conduct background checks.

Another proposal was that a member had to serve for at least five years before being allowed to take up a leadership position.

This was to ensure those who were elected to national or provincial leadership positions were “tried and tested”.
