Gauteng ANC officials have until next week to convince one of their own in the provincial legislature to step aside, to allow for the redeployment of Parks Tau, the cooperative governance and traditional affairs (Cogta) deputy minister.

The ANC's plan for Tau to be introduced as the preferred choice for the role of Gauteng MEC for economic development was stymied by the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) on Tuesday. 

The ANC officials had all but finished their negotiations and were only left with one task - to call on ANCYL provincial leader Thulani Ndlovu to resign - when the young lions threw a spanner in the works by refusing for any of their members to step aside.
