With only a few days to go before the ANC's elective conference in Mangaung it is still not clear if Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe has accepted a nomination to lead the party.

ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu said this would be made public at the conference, which starts on Sunday.

"It is conference which needs that confirmation," he said.

"All those who qualify, they are then approached by the electoral commission and asked if they accept or decline. This happens between now and the conference."

Mthembu said not even the African National Congress knew who had accepted nominations yet.

Nomination conferences by the ANC's nine provincial branches and three leagues ended on Thursday, nearly a week after the deadline.

KwaZulu-Natal, Free State, Northern Cape, Eastern Cape, North West and Mpumalanga nominated President Jacob Zuma to stand for a second term as party president. The ANC Women's and Veterans' leagues also nominated Zuma.

Gauteng, Limpopo, the Western Cape, and the ANC Youth League nominated Motlanthe.
