This comes ahead of the ANC’s 55th national elective conference due to be held in mid-December.

The party held a media briefing following a special PEC meeting on Monday.

The province – which is sending the second largest delegation to the 55th conference – wants party President Cyril Ramaphosa to get a second term and it’s thrown its weight behind the current national chairperson Gwede Mantashe.

Provincial secretary, Lulama Ngcukaitobi said it’s approaching other provinces with gender parity and infusing the younger generation into leadership positions in mind.
