The ANC regional conferences for Nelson Mandela and Amathole regions that were set to take place this coming weekend, Dec. 16-18, 2016, have now been rescheduled for February 2017. The Amathole regional conference will now take place on 10-12 February 2017, with the Nelson Mandela regional conference rescheduled for 17-19 February 2017.
The reason for the rescheduling of the Nelson Mandela regional conference was due to the delays in membership audit processes done at the branch level. Amathole region has not met the requisite 70% threshold of BGMs for the conference, which led to the regional conference being rescheduled to February 2017. The PEC has set up teams per sub regions to attend to all the disputes that have been lodged.
All BGMs for these two regional conferences have been suspended because of the December closing and will resume on 5 January 2016. This has been communicated with the leadership structures of the affected regions and all other details and logistics regarding these conferences will be communicated with the branches.
