Free State ANC members lose court bid

2012-10-25 19:44

Johannesburg - Six ANC members seeking to have the Free State party conference of 22 June declared null and void lost their court application on Thursday, SABC news reported.

The Free State High Court in Bloemfontein dismissed the group's application with costs.

They wanted a court order to stop provincial leader Ace Magashule, who was re-elected at the June conference, and his provincial executive committee (PEC), from working.

The six wanted the court to order the ANC to dissolve the Free State PEC and appoint an interim management structure.

The national ANC's decision to accept and support the conference election results should also be put aside.

A spokesperson for the group told the SABC: "Today the judge was very unfair because we have all the evidence... provided in terms of how the conference was rigged and we put it in front of the court."
