ANC steering committee to present report on voting discrepancy

Since Tuesday, there has been speculation about what the national steering committee of the party will do to resolve the omission of 68 votes from the overall top six results.

JOHANNESBURG - Outgoing African National Congress (ANC) spokesperson Zizi Kodwa says the party's steering committee will present a report on Wednesday on the discrepancy with the missing votes that resulted in talks about the legitimacy of the secretary-general position.

Since Tuesday, there has been speculation about what the national steering committee of the party will do to resolve the omission of 68 votes from the overall top six results.

Kodwa says the report is expected to be tabled this morning.

He also says the ANC programme will wrap up today as planned.

“We have no plans to be here beyond today and the conference won’t collapse on the last day. If that was the case, it should have collapsed on the first day.”

At the same time, while there have been disputes over the position of ANC secretary-general with calls for a recount of votes, the party is adamant that the conference will wrap up as scheduled.

The ANC held commissions overnight and is expected to deliver reports in plenary on Wednesday.

Voting for 80 additional national executive committee members also started on Tuesday.

The ANC's Khusela Sangoni said: “Time is a bit tight. We were supposed to have a full day of commissions on organisational renewal as well as strategy and tactics which unfortunately we couldn’t because of the delays experienced.

“There’s no indication of any need to go beyond tomorrow evening. We’re committed to finishing the work as late as it needs to be.”
