The ANC is kicking its candidate lists process into high gear to make sure they meet the IEC's deadline.

The African National Congress (ANC) will launch its 2021 election manifesto in Tshwane on Monday, 27 September.

Its head of elections, Fikile Mbalula, made the announcement on Thursday afternoon during a media briefing.

The party missed its first deadline to submit the candidate's list for many municipalities it is contesting. Will it make it this time around?

Ray White, standing in for John Perlman, speaks to Eyewitness News senior political reporter Tshidi Madia about the party's plans.

I do think this time around they are going to get it [lists] in on time. From what I understand, the party's gone to great lengths in provinces. They're checking if people's ID numbers are correct, checking if the person is in the right ward... I actually think they know what is at stake and I think they will get it right.

Tshidi Madia, Senior politics journalist - Eyewitness News
