African National Congress (ANC) secretary general, Gwede Mantashe, says the ruling party will continue to engage structures on what needs to be done to address the poor performance during the local government elections.
Mantashe says like any other ANC structure, the ANCYL has a right to make a proposal and the ANC will look at it.
As it is raised by the Youth League, structures of the ANC must engage in the discussion.— Gwede Mantashe, ANC secretary general
The fact that the ANC itself has made the diagnosis about this negative narrative must instill hope that the ANC is keen to do something about any of the things diagnosed to have contributed.— Gwede Mantashe, ANC secretary general
Asked by Xolani Gwala, how many structures of the ANC should engage the party before it implements changes, Mantashe said the ANC members know the answer.
Members of the ANC will know their Constitution. They know which structures can make that call and be constituted. One of them is them is the NEC, another one if the majority of provinces. That's all.— Gwede Mantashe, ANC secretary general
Leadership should be accountable to its structures and actually respond to calls by ts structures, but should not be reckless in doing so.— Gwede Mantashe, ANC secretary general
