Voting was well under way at the ANC national conference on Monday morning as thousands of delegates cast their ballot to elect new leadership.
The ANC's 54th national conference marks the end of President Jacob Zuma's tenure as head of the party.
Polling finally kicked off around midnight after protracted delays‚ caused by disputes over delegate accreditation and the voting process. The winning candidates are expected to be announced on Monday afternoon.
The conference started on Saturday but the programme only kicked into full gear on Sunday afternoon.
