ANC dissolves Mpumalanga PEC | The The Vanir-exodus

The Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) of the African National Congress (ANC) in Mpumalanga has been dissolved.

This was just a week before the party was expected to hold its provincial election conference between March 11 and 13, where it was expected to make its choice of leaders at the party’s 55th election conference later this year.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is reportedly set to go to the province in the Ehlanzeni region on Monday.

According to the ANC’s statutes, the provincial conference must be held at least once every four years and more often at the request of at least one-third of all reputable branches in the province.

The conference is also expected to elect the provincial president, deputy president, secretary, deputy secretary, treasurer and the 30 additional members of the PEC, who will serve in office for four years.

The ANC’s current PEC in Mpumalanga was elected at the December 2015 provincial conference. The term of office of the PEC has now expired.

Last Monday, the national board decided in a meeting to dissolve the ANC in Mpumalanga and to appoint a provincial task team in the meantime.

According to the ruling party, the provincial task team will perform the functions of the PEC, including ensuring that a provincial conference is held to elect a PEC.

“In terms of Rule 2.2.4, the NEC shall: ensure that the ANC’s provincial, regional and departmental structures and leagues function democratically and effectively. The PEC may not exceed a period of three months. The election of a PEC, which was dissolved, shall be called within 9 months of the date of dissolution. The NEC must appoint an interim structure to perform the functions of the PEC during the period of suspension of the dissolution of the PEC.”
