ANC 2017 Elective Conference

NDZ loses out on 27 votes ahead of ANC elective conference

The ANC presidential candidate Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has effectively lost out on 27 votes ahead of the ANC's national elective conference.

This comes after the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) High Court that the party's provincial executive committee (PEC) would remain dissolved until the outcome of an appeal process.

This KZN PEC supports Dlamini-Zuma, marking a blow for the presidential hopeful.

The court has granted an application for leave to appeal the dissolution of the KZN ANC's committee, however it wiLl no longer have voting rights at the conference. .

At the same time, the North West High Court has also declared the ANC Bojanala regional conference null and void, which will have implication on attendance at the conference.

Political analyst Karima Brown says the voting process may be delayed due to pending court cases and debate over credentials at the conference.

Brown joined EWN reporter Clement Manyathelaa and political analyst Lukhona Mnguni to discuss how the presidential race has played out.

It's effectively minus 27 votes for NDZ. These court rulings are not working for her and the numbers are not going to stack up.

Karima Brown, political analyst

The ANC is going to have to have a mechanism to exclude the delegates from the tally until the court has ruled on these matters.

Karima Brown, political analyst

I foresee a possible recount because the credential process will be impacted by the courts and by appeals. The voting is going to be delayed.
