ANC EC to finalise candidates list

The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape is working round the clock to finalise its candidates list ahead of the party’s national list conference on Friday.

The party presented its list to the national election team at Luthuli House in Johannesburg on Tuesday, and was advised to make changes.

The province is expected to present the candidates list to the national election team.

Provincial Secretary, Oscar Mabuyane, says while almost 90 % of the work has been done, they are struggling in some areas.

“We still have regions like Nelson Mandela, KSD in Mtata as well in Amathole where we are still struggling to meet those minimum requirements particularly 60 % and 20 %. But 20% becomes a challenge in terms of young people who have been nominated. We have a lesser number of young people. So, it gives us a challenge in terms of getting those young people to address those required numbers in terms of the required demand.”
