Durban - Willies Mchunu is expected to be sworn in as the premier of KwaZulu-Natal in the provincial legislature on Wednesday.

Mchunu, the deputy chairperson of the ANC in KZN, will succeed Senzo Mchunu, who resigned as premier on Monday night.

According to a statement released by the party, Willies Mchunu would be elected as premier and then sworn in soon after.  

"Our movement prides itself for the investment it has done to produce a capable comrade of Mchunu's calibre, stature and political astuteness over many years," the ANC said in a statement.

"The ANC is positive that the deployment of Mchunu as the premier will, undoubtedly, enhance the presence of our movement with quality contribution to the advancement of the course of our people."

The ascension of Willies Mchunu brings stability following power struggles within the upper ranks of the ANC, the party said.
