ANCYL in KZN calls for ‘generational mix’ of leaders
The league says it wants at least 40% of young people in the next elected ANC National Executive Committee.
JOHANNEBSURG - As the succession debate and who will control the African National Congress (ANC) after the party's 2017 national elective conference, the KwaZulu-Natal ANC Youth League (ANCYL) has called for a significant representation from the youth.
The league says it wants a generational mix of at least 40 percent of young people in the next elected ANC National Executive Committee (NEC).
The provincial spokesperson Mandla Shange says they will raise their concerns once the debate is opened by the NEC of the party.
"We wouldn't want to venture into air discussions before it is open by the national leadership of the ANC. Once it is open, we will then participate as members of the ANC and structures of the ANC."
Shange says they support the call by the NEC to have a female as the next president of the ANC.
"There's a variety of females in the ANC that we can look up to. Obviously Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is among those people we can probably look at but there are many other female comrades up there."
