ANC postpones credentials to second day

JOHANNESBURG, December 16 -The African National Congress (ANC) on Saturday, postponed the contentious issue of credentials to Sunday amidst a national executive committee (NEC) decision to bar some delegates from voting at its national conference.
The conference was delayed for at least eight hours as the ANC NEC held an impromptu meeting to iron out the contentious court judgments.
The NEC decided to exclude KwaZulu-Natal, Free State, and North West’s Bojanala district from voting at the conference. The leadership of these regions have had to contend with court challenges brought by disgruntled members.
With court cases challenging the legitimacy of some of the provincial and regional conference, the threat of disputes over credentials were expected at the hotly contested conference.
This follows a messy two-day registration process for delegates at Soweto’s University of Johannesburg campus. Registrations were only completed after 2pm on Saturday.
The second day of the conference will commence with a business breakfast session. Delegates are expected to be in the plenary by 9am.
