Statement of the ANC Peter Mokaba Region on the Special Regional General Council held on the 11th June 2017 at Nirvana Hall, Polokwane

The ANC Peter Mokaba Region held its Special Regional General Council to discuss and decide on various organisational matters. After thorough and robust debates, the Special RGC decided as follows

1. Regional General Councils and Sectorial Meetings

Following the National Executive Committee (NEC) decision, after a detailed and well-considered discussion, on the imperatives and unavoidable discussion on names of Candidates to be elected in the December 2017 National Conference.

It (NEC) emerged with a firm decision that there is need for the NEC to provide proper guidance and management on the discussion of names that come up as candidates to be elected in the National Conference to ensure that the names are tested against the Through The Eye Of The Needle and organisational prescripts, discipline and democratically embodied in the ANC value systems and culture.

This will eliminate and affirm the candidates against the Organisational Principles. Accordingly the NEC will visit all provinces through Regional General Councils to lead the discussion starting from the 11th June to 25th June 2017. Based on this decision, the NEC deployed Cde Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba to address the Special ANC Peter Mokaba Region.
