ANC 2017 Elective Conference

How court nullification of NW Regional Conference and 40 BGMs will affect #ANC54

The High Court in Mahikeng has nullified the ANC's Bojanala Regional Conference as well as Branch General Meetings (BGM) of 40 branches.

On the other hand, the Pietermaritzburg High Court has reserved judgment in the ANC KZN case to appeal a ruling marking its contentious November 2015 conference null and void.

EWN reporter Gaye Davis says these court rulings will definitely affect the number of delegates attending the conference.

This doesn't affect the branches, but the provincial executive. What I understand is, that where these provincial executives members who normally come to conference bringing each of them, 27 votes per province - where they are embroiled in challenges and legal disputes, those executive members put themselves on the branch list of delegates.

So they are number one on the branch list of delegates. They will still to this conference and they will still vote but their numbers will be reduced by 27 members where the courts have nullified.

We will only know the credentials when the general deputy secretary Jessie Duarte delivers the credentials report.

According to Davis, the Mail&Guardian has been reporting that 300 delegates have been disqualified but are still planning to attend.

Unlike previous conferences, registration is being done in the hometown before delegates get on buses to Nasrec to ensure that they are the right people who are on the official list, explains Davis.

If they do not have their tags and IDs, the are not going to be allowed in.
