ANC will re-do processes

2012-11-19 18:58

Johannesburg - The ANC's national executive committee will implement all recommendations made by a task team that probed list irregularities during the local government elections, Secretary General Gwede Mantashe said on Monday.

"Specific recommendations will be handed over to the new NEC for implementation, including cases where the task team recommends that ANC process be redone... and the councillor be recalled and by-elections be re-done," Mantashe told reporters in Johannesburg.

"Also a recommendation by the committee that those who manipulated the list processes be brought before ANC disciplinary structures, will also be taken forward by the new NEC."

Mantashe said it would not be right to do the recalls just before the African National Congress' national elective conference in Mangaung next month.

Before last year's 18 May local government elections, the ANC announced a new process allowing communities to select their candidates.

There were several protests around the country when popular candidates were removed from the candidate lists.

The task team, headed by now African Union commission chair Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, handed its report to the NEC during its meeting at the weekend.

This was the last meeting of the NEC which was elected in 2007.

Mantashe said the team investigated 419 wards where there had been complaints.

This was only 10% of the party's wards.

"This confirms that a majority... of the ANC adhered to the guidelines of the ANC and conducted themselves in accordance with ANC dictates and guidelines," Mantashe said.

      Did we really think the results would be any different, with Zuma's ex doing the investigating?

      saintbruce.bruce - 2012-11-20 11:02

      Oh - they only want to address this process AFTER Mangaung! Seeing as this flawed process - by their own admission and only after sampling just 10% of their wards - is possibly allowing illegally elected representatives to make decision affecting the ward and thus the regional vote for the ANC Elective Conference in Mangaung, then how can any free and fair loving democratic person believe ANY result obtained by ANY so called democratic process within the ANC ?? If there was only 1 case of fraud found, that person should be recalled [fired] immediately and any and all decisions affected by that person should be re-done before that vote can be counted. Is it possible that Provinces sending delegates to Mangaung to elect the next leader of the ANC are actually going to be there via a process of Fraud and Corruption?? Are they given the right, unjustly, to elect a future leader of this countries largest political party on that basis? How then can the ANC structures call themselves representative of their voter base on this evidence [ just a sample mind you- the truth could be much much worse] of irregularities in council elections. This is a HUGE scandal deserving of massive attention and outcry. Yet is seems not to faze our esteemed leaders one little bit. Should we be worried ?

    Yeah, wonder exactly how many phantom voters, grant beneficiaries, officials on extended leave - or suspension - and other skeletons they'll find, or not find. Love the ANC, always take a 2nd bite at the cherry if they blatantly stuff it up the 1st time.

      This is an effort to get ALL THOSE ZUMA supporters on the list.... and SCRAP all the other proposals/nominees.... As the old saying goes: "The votes will be RE-COUNTED until the right man WINS"!!!!! This fiasco is a Fine example!

    How about not lying to people, not threatenning them nor intimidating them. how about allowing one to speak their mind and follow their beliefs without saying that the ANc is your key to heaven because its the key to HELL just look at AFRICA

  • Montagnes.Bleues - 2012-11-20 07:29
