Delegates begin to arrive for highly anticipated ANC Gauteng conference – SABC News

The African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng says all systems will go ahead of the conference this weekend. This as delegates have started coming for the highly anticipated conference.

Gauteng is known to be the economic hub of the country, which needs strong leadership that will ensure that the party continues to find roots in the province.

The 14th ANC Gauteng Election Conference will take place in Benoni, east of Johannesburg on Friday, until Sunday. It will see more than 1,000 delegates attend this long-awaited conference.

Those elected as the new leadership of the ANC in the province will have the gigantic task of uniting the ANC and arresting diminishing support.

However, the nomination and election process of the new leadership will only take place on Saturday. Provincial secretary Jacob Khawe says the conference will start with committees, as opposed to electing the new leadership.

The competition for the chairmanship is between the current deputy chairman, Panyaza Lesufi, and PEC member Lebogang Maile. ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa will officially close the conference on Sunday.

Meanwhile, officials have called on delegates to not only prioritize the election and nomination of leaders, but to engage in meaningful discussions on the party’s policy documents.
