ANC NEC: Big question is whether they appeal KZN judgment - Brown

The African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee (NEC) has convened a special meeting on Friday morning.

Political analyst Karima Brown runs through some of the items on the agenda, including the roadmap to the December elective conference, and the Pietermaritzburg High court judgment forcing KZN province to have fresh elections.

Brown says a lot is resting on this meeting.

The meeting was called because of the court judgment of the Pietermaritzburg High Court and then, of course, we have the so-called ban on all regional and provincial conferences....

Karima Brown, political analyst

The problems for the African National Congress remains, and the big question they have to mull over is whether they appeal the judgment and of course what happens after that.

Brown says Makhosi Khoza's resignation from the ruling party suggests a renewal and an attempt to deal with what she has referred to as the rot in the ruling party.

What it also does is that increasingly people who feel like Makhosi Khoza have to begin to make tough choices.
