ANC Western Cape 'rehabilitating' structures - party

2016-06-07 09:54

Cape Town – The African National Congress in the Western Cape is working on "rehabilitating" its ailing structures, spokesperson Jabu Mfusi said on Monday.

"The process has officially started today, and [this] will be ongoing towards the elections," he said.

This follows the last minute postponement of the manifesto launch of the ANC in the Western Cape where deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa was due to speak this weekend.

The postponement was due to ongoing disputes over candidate lists, the party said.

Mfusi said following a meeting on Monday, it was agreed that the party would have an elections meeting, which would include the provincial elections team.

Candidate nominations closed on Thursday, June 2.

Reaching out to all structures

Mfusi said the provincial list committee would give an official report to the structures this month, explaining why certain people made it onto the list and others did not.

They would then give an official report on who had registered which ward.

They were taking the process as a means of reaching out to all structures, he said.

The Wednesday elections meeting would be followed by a Provincial Executive Committee meeting, Mfusi said.

"The PEC would deliberate on the lists and also take the time to explain the decisions to the structures," he said.

The party had not set a new date for the manifesto launch yet, he said.
