1.1 The NEC meeting on 7 September 2020 agreed to urgently establish the Electoral Committee as resolved by the 54th Conference to make rules for and manage the selection of candidates for ANC public representatives, as well as for leadership positions in ANC structures. The EC was established early in 2021.
1.2 The Conference Resolutions were passed to address weaknesses and manipulation of ANC selection and elections processes, and campaigning rules. The goal was to ensure a process that delivers candidates and leaders with the capacity, integrity and support needed to lead the ANC and government.
1.3 The EC does not elect or select leaders or candidates. It plays the same role as the IEC in national elections – the rule-maker and referee. Election administration is done by an independent agency, or structures, staff or volunteers, appointed by the EC and accountable to the EC.
1.4 ANC branches are the primary structures of the ANC that nominate and vote for candidates for leadership. At Conference branch delegates must make up 90% of voting delegates.
