South African ruling party African National Congress (ANC) on Sunday said they had finished credentials presentation and verification and 4,776 people would vote for the top six on Sunday.
ANC Deputy Secretary Jeesie Duarte said this at a press briefing that the next party president would require 2,389 votes to land the post.
The verification and credentials checking had to take a day because of court rulings, said Duarte.
The courts nullified the provincial leadership elections in KwaZulu-Natal, Free State and North West after other members approached the courts.
She said the conference is proceeding well despite delays. “There is nothing usual about the delay, we had to do this to ensure the credibility of the process. The credentials have been adopted.”
She said that the adoption of credentials would enable the adoption the rules of the conference. The conference will discuss the proposals to the changes to the ANC constitution on Sunday on a closed session.
On Sunday there will be nomination of the top ANC leadership and a presentation of the organizational report by the party Secretary General Gwede Mantashe. Duarte said the results of the election of the top six would release probably on Monday morning or late on Sunday.
The alliance partners would present solidarity massages on Monday. Then ANC would also discuss organization renewal before the end of the conference. Duarte said 90 percent of the delegates would vote and the barring the delegates with court challenges would not affect the outcome of the conference. Enditem
