The ANC is looking at setting up an internal electoral commission to ensure that the party transparently selects the best public officials.

This objective is outlined in the party’s “legislature and governance” policy discussion documents, coming ahead of its policy conference, which will take place in June.

The proposal to make the selection processes more transparent comes on the back of “list wars” that played out ahead of the local government polls last year.
