ANC: bid to screen reps

2010-12-01 00:00

THE ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has announced that it will form branch screening committees in local communities in a bid to strengthen list guidelines and ensuring that the credibility of the organisation’s candidates ahead of next year’s local government elections is intact.

ANC provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala made the announcement at a media briefing held at the party’s provincial headquarters in Durban yesterday.

“The 52nd national conference resolved that we should strengthen list guidelines and processes for public representatives to enhance democratic participation, to ensure that we select and employ the best cadres for public office and involve the community in our candidate selection processes,” Zikalala said.
