ANC nomination process under way

2012-12-17 13:29

Bloemfontein - The ANC was expected to announce who had been nominated to stand for its top six leadership posts at its elective conference in Mangaung on Monday afternoon.

Singing delegates welcomed the African National Congress's electoral commission onto the stage, in a large tent erected on the University of the Free State's sports grounds.

North West and Limpopo delegates sang songs expressing support for President Jacob Zuma, with most delegates holding up two fingers, signifying they wanted him to serve a second term as ANC leader.

A splinter group sang "shower songs", referring to Zuma's utterances during his rape trial in 2005. He was acquitted of the charges.

The party's electoral commission said the nomination process was successful in all provinces.

The second day of the African National Congress's elective conference in Mangaung got under way on Monday with closed discussions about the credentials of delegates who would nominate the party's top six leaders.

The ANC adjourned the conference around midnight on Sunday because of a dispute over the matter.

      I would like to comment, when commenting mind your language, yes we are getting poor. The question what is the solution, complaining with no solution. I would say on this topic, let's go with people or organisation that will build SA but with our participation

    I hope they choose someone with an iota of intelligence, common sense, skills, business acumen - and good looks ha ha. Well I can dream huh? I would give my right arm to be governed by a guy like Barack Obama - like him or not! Now compare him to what we do have? Or likely to get? Oh and can they do away with the singing and dancing? Please! How on earth will the rest of the world take us seriously - fat people dancing and singing with no rythm - I have an issue with that!

    Watching on TV the process by which South Africa's president is elected, it is hardly surprising the country is in such a mess. One tent full of a bunch of rowdy people deciding for the entire country. What a joke and a laugh a minute.

      @ Don Tandy,don't snort or smoke or drink anything before U comment,whatever country U compare its processes with SA, SA is not that country and never will be!!Remember U have a right to emigrate to any of your favourite country!

    Everyone has a right to say or speak whatever he or she wants but for the South Africans I would like to say to them yes as it is your right to speak or talk but for being patrotic such funny actions and possing about the state president is not good at all because because of your actions you are putting this country on a wrong map internationally and make other nations to disrespect our first citizens and as such the country too, let us refrain from that while practicing our democratic ways or actions for the benefit of this country and that should be to all presidents of this country irrespective of party that is or will be on power by then or now. Let us love our country like we love ourselves.
