The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape Province held its ordinary Provincial Working Committee (PWC) meeting on the 21st August 2017, at Canon James Calata House. The PWC meeting was preceded by the meeting between the ANC PEC Officials and the team of NEC members deployed to the Province to oversee the upcoming Provincial Conference
The PWC as mandated by the PEC to oversee the preparations for the upcoming ANC Eastern Cape Provincial Conference, received a report on the state of readiness for the Conference.
The report detailed the number of Branch General Meetings (BGMs) convened to date, appeals received and progress on the BGM verification audit.
Noting the number of outstanding branch appeals, the delay on the BGM verification audit, and the availability of the conference venue, the PWC decided to postpone the Provincial Conference to the 27th – 30th September 2017.
The PWC also extended the cut of date for convening of the outstanding Branch General Meetings to the 31st August 2017 and as such branches that have not yet convened their BGMs are encouraged to take full advantage of this extension, as it is the last extension. The team of NEC members deployed to the Province has also scheduled the hearing of branch appeals to commence from the 25th August 2017.
As part of the ANC’s oversight on government, the PWC has scheduled an extended meeting of the Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) for the 27th August 2017. This PEC meeting will be extended to ANC Public Representatives, Alliance components and other Mass Democratic Movement structures.
This extended PEC meeting will mostly focus on planning the key ANC priorities for government for the coming financial year.
The PWC has again reiterated the PEC’s commitment to convene a credible 8th Provincial Conference of the ANC in the Eastern Cape.
