The regional leadership held a meeting on Tuesday where names were chosen pending an agreement from other structures.
This led to another meeting on Wednesday, which included voting delegates, branch chairs and secretaries. However, no agreement was reached, resulting in a need for an RGC.
“eThekwini is trying to drive this process in a manner that is going to be inclusive of all its members and constituencies; to maintain unity in the region, that is what is important for us.
“This process will culminate in a decision today, to have one view that will come out of eThekwini. This is to make sure the leadership does not take over the role of branches,” Mkhize said.
TimesLIVE can reveal that during Tuesday’s meeting the REC settled on two names for the position of provincial chair and secretary. However, sources at the meeting with branch representatives questioned the decisions.
“The REC names are not final but the question was mainly what about the other two candidates who were nominated by branches in eThekwini, because they don't appear anywhere in the REC’s list?” an attendee told TimesLIVE.
Mkhize said the two names for the two positions was not an indication of divisions within the REC but a principled stand to give branches options.
