Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League will hold provincial general councils - starting this weekend - when, among other things, each province will decide who to nominate for leadership positions.

The league is holding its long-awaited elective congress next week from September 4 to 6 in Midrand, Johannesburg.

The ANCYL's leadership structures were disbanded in 2013 and replaced with a national task team (NTT) and provincial task teams.

The congress was meant to be held last year December, but at the last minute it was converted into a consultative congress, which upset some ANCYL members who were ready to elect new leaders.

It was then set to be held in July, but had to be postponed. There were allegations that this was because of interference, but ANCYL NTT co-ordinator and Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa said it was because not all branches had managed to hold branch general meetings.
