FS ANC case heads to ConCourt
Free State ANC members taking the party to the Constitutional Court are confident they will win.
JOHANNESBURG - Six Free State ANC members taking the party to the Constitutional Court on Tuesday say they are confident they will win, in a case that could throw the party's Mangaung preparations into turmoil.
The group is claiming the party's Free State branch did not have a proper conference in June, and wants the meeting to be reconvened.
Applicant Mpho Ramakatsa is confident of victory, despite having failed when asking a High Court to overturn the June conference decisions.
"The Constitution of the country dominates the constitutions of all other institutions."
However, ANC spokesperson Keith Khoza is not worried about the case.
He said the fact that the group had failed in their court bids twice already gave him assurance.
If Ramakatsa wins, the Free State ANC, which is seen to back President Jacob Zuma, could have to hold its June conference again.
The ruling party will hold its elective conference in December, in Mangaung.
