ANC 2017 Elective Conference

Free State PEC likely to be interdicted before end of the week- Karima Brown

While Ace Magashule has been re-elected unopposed as provincial African National Congress (ANC) chairperson in the Free State, a legal battle is looming.

Disgruntled members have asked lawyers to file an urgent application against the provincial party’s leadership.

The group says 32% of branches in the province have lodged disputes and that the provincial leaders are in contempt of court for holding the conference on Monday.

Political analyst Karima Brown says the group may interdict to nullify the provincial congress, as well as it's provincial executive committee. They will also look to stop the province's delegates from participating in the national elective congress this weekend.

They are planning to interdict them, that interdict is going to be served on Thursday.

The aim with that interdict is to not just question the process but to seek to nullify all the processes that the Free State has been involved in and they are seeking to nullify the presence of the 402 delegates that the Free State has to the conferee, as well as the PEC.

Mr Magashule's victory might be very short lived.
