ANC youth calls for renewal

The ANC Youth League says it will respect anyone who will be elected to lead the party in Mangaung next month.

The league's deputy president, Ronald Lamola, told members of its national executive committee at a meeting in Pretoria yesterday that no one should leave the organisation because their preferred candidates did not make it.

Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe has emerged as the league's presidential candidate, while treasurer Mathews Phosa has been earmarked for the deputy president position.

About a month ago, the league was divided on who between Phosa and Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale should hold the position.

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula is the preferred candidate for the secretary-general position, with Thenjiwe Mtintso as his deputy.

Sexwale is the league's choice for the treasurer's position, whereas North West Premier Thandi Modise is preferred for the position of national chairman.

Lamola said the process was not anti-President Jacob Zuma, adding it was a "process to renew the ANC ."

"We will work with whoever has been elected. We will campaign for the 2014 elections," he said.
