POLITICS

Just when the governing party thought the dust was settling on the local elections candidates’ list disputes, a group of disgruntled ANC Women’s League (ANCWL) members in Ekurhuleni has dragged the party to court.

The 31 members accuse the party of failing to intervene in the ANCWL’s disputed seventh regional conference in June this year, according to an urgent application lodged in the Johannesburg High Court on September 3. The members claim that the elections were rigged and, despite the group’s dispute lodged with the regional, provincial and the national executive committees, challenging the results, nothing was done.
