It is Ramaphosa vs Mkhize at the ANC elective conference by Radio Islam International published on 2022-11-23T09:38:15Z At the ANC elective conference in December, President Cyril Ramaphosa and Zweli Mkhize will square off for the top position of party leader. Ramaphosa is well ahead after receiving 2,037 nominations from branches, while Mkhize only received 916. The ANC made public the top six candidates for the role of deputy president, including Paul Mashatile, Ronald Lamola, and Oscar Mabuyane. However, according to Kgalema Motlanthe, ANC’s head of the electoral committee, the process is still open for objections and appeals, which might lead to a different outcome. He said this is the culmination of nominations received from branches, but delegates at the conference can also nominate from the floor. Radio Islam International discussed with political analyst Dr Fikile Vilikazi, who has accused the governing party of compromising the gender parity rule stipulated in the ANC constitution.
