JOHANNESBURG РThe African National Congress (ANC) NEC has failed to select a candidate that will take over as North West premier, delegating the responsibility to the party’s national working committee that will sit on Wednesday.

Media reports have said that the NEC failed to reach a consensus on any of the three names that were submitted by the provincial party.

The names handed in by the North West province were former director-general in the province Job Mokgoro, ambassador to the United Nations Jerry Matjila and Speaker of the provincial legislature Susan Dantjie to the NEC to take over from Supra Mahumapelo who took early retirement.

The reports suggest that the ANC could not agree on one name and have now tasked the NWC to meet on Wednesday who must take the final decision.

NEC during the meeting agreed that the party must solve the political divisions in the Eastern Cape and Free State, where unhappy members go to the courts to dissolve their provincial leadership.

In terms of the Kwa Zulu Natal province, where the party is unstable, the NEC agreed that the resolution committee must continue engaging with both factions in order to find common ground and said the conference which experienced disruptions a few weeks ago will take place in at the end of July.
