After doing the sums, Professor Richard Calland calculates 4 700 delegates will vote, a loss of 405.
How will this impact the presidential candidate's camps?
North West Province has lost 92 voters, and is 80/20% in favour of Dalmini-Zuma.
Limpopo, a Ramaphosa backing province, has lost 76 voting delegates.
There are still 355 'Unity' branches from Mpumalanga in the game, says Calland.
One of the biggest issues raised during the registration process at the 54th ANC Elective conference was the rumor surround delegates slipping in with fraudulent documents.
The 'fraudulent' delegates would have come from the 380 ANC branches who have not held general meetings and thus are not allowed to vote.
Now that the credential process is completed, political commentator Professor Richard Calland says the numbers indicate that these delegates have not slipped through the process.
There were allegations that they were fraudulently slipping in, with fraudulent documents, alleging to have branch general meetings. It looks like that never happened. The numbers correspond with that.— Professor Richard Calland
Senior Research Associate at the Paternoster Group, Nathan Dufour says so far the numbers surrounding the conference and the number of delegates are as projected. He adds that the biggest question around the conference and the final outcome of the nomination process is the difference between the number of branches and the allocated delegate for each of those branches.
It the ratio, a key in the election that no one really had, besides perhaps the Electoral Commission and a few people like Elections Agency.— Nathan Dufour, Senior Research Associate at the Paternoster Group
