Take 2: round 2 of the 14th ANC Gauteng provincial conference gets under way
More than 1,000 delegates gathered for the second leg of 14th ANC Gauteng provincial conference as the party reconvenes for the programme at the Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg, Ekurhuleni.
TimesLIVE reported that ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe and newly elected provincial secretary TK Nciza said the party in the province had to break its provincial conference into two because of shambolic organisation of the first leg a fortnight ago.
The only thing that was achieved on the agenda was electing the provincial officials.
Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi was elected chair and Nomantu Ralehoko his deputy. Tasneem Motara is Nciza’s deputy and Morakane Mosupyoe the provincial treasurer.
This weekend the party plans to elect the additional members of the provincial executive committee (PEC) and discuss policy proposals that the province will take to the ANC national policy conference.
On Saturday, delegates were expected to be addressed by Lesufi and announce the nominees for the additional members. Those elected were expected to be announced on Saturday night.
It was not clear whether party president Cyril Ramaphosa, who was expected to address the gathering on the 67th anniversary of the Freedom Charter, would make an appearance at the conference.
