JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) delegates in the Eastern Cape and Free State registered for their nomination conferences on Thursday.

Over the next 24 hours, their votes should prove crucial in the ANC’s leadership race.

Gauteng delegates will be meeting on Thursday evening, while Mpumalanga delegates are also due to meet on Thursday.

The ANC is preparing for its elective conference in Mangaung over December.

As the ANC's biggest province, KwaZulu-Natal is already backing President Jacob Zuma for a second term.

This means it will be vital for Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe’s supporters that he do well.

The Eastern Cape ANC was thought to back Motlanthe, but its leaders now back Zuma.

The provincial party’s spokesperson Mlibo Qoboshiyane said, “The first thing that we are going to do is start with the nominations process. Later today, we will be in a position to know the top six. I think we will vote throughout the night for additional members.”

Meanwhile, Free State ANC spokesperson Oupa Khoabane is also backing Zuma.

“I think later today, we will know what the delegates have decided.”

But Gauteng delegates are expected to back Motlanthe.
