ANC bigwigs oversee Cape nominations

2012-12-05 20:10

Cape Town - Members of the ANC national executive committee task team arrived in Cape Town on Wednesday for the reconvened Western Cape nomination conference.

Their presence at the provincial general conference is seen as key to the province concluding its nominations for the ruling party's Mangaung national elective conference.

Last week, two attempts to conclude the province's nomination process collapsed, as a result of the provincial executive committee not having the authority to rule over branch disputes. The NEC task team would now deal with this.

NEC members present included Public Service and Administration Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi and Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane.

Struggle stalwart Andrew Mlangeni, from the ANC electoral commission, was also present. Most voting delegates had arrived by 18:00.

Western Cape ANC chairperson Marius Fransman was optimistic there would be a clear indication of who branch delegates endorsed for ANC leadership posts before midnight.

"We clearly believe that the conference will happen very smoothly, because the Western Cape leadership won't need to deal with disputes, as that will be done separately by the NEC task team."

He said delegates would register over the next few hours, before the nomination process got underway.

"We must be confident here that round about 22:00 we will see results."

Last week, divisions were evident during the PGC processes, which were adjourned without results.

Some delegates were dressed in t-shirts with pro-Zuma slogans on them, others in attire which bore the faces and names of their preferences for the ANC's top six officials, including Kgalema Motlanthe for president.

    Wena Masilo you are suffering from inferiority complex, the sooner you think beyond race card the better for your immune system and your confidence. I know that I am a diligent fellow as any other human being whether white or black and I am sure all races in South Africa think alike. Wena you must just stop embarrassing yourself by exposing your limitations about race
