Gwede Mantashe: Nullified structures will not vote as they will contaminate conference

Thabo Mohlala

Structures that were nullified by the three court rulings yesterday will not be allowed to vote at the ANC 54th conference scheduled to start shortly this afternoon, Gwede Mantashe, told a brief media conference.

He said this was the outcome of the party’s urgently convened national executive committee (NEC) earlier this morning to discuss the implications of the court judgments against some of its provincial structures.

“All structures that are nullified by the courts will not be voting delegates at conference. We are not even going to try any idea that will actually contaminate the conference,” said Mantashe. He said the same will apply to “the branches that were cited in the cases in both Bojanala and the Free State will not vote at conference. We will not even allow then to vote with different colour coding. They are here already as observers and invitees to the conference.”

He said other issues will be discussed by the various provinces beyond the conference.
