ANC 2017 Elective Conference

'ANC hasn't stuck to its own campaign rules'

The ANC has not been able to consistently apply their campaign rules at the party's elective conference, says Mail&Guardian journalist Govan Whittles.

Many ANC delegates have been brandishing campaign T-shirts and posters declaring their preferred presidential candidate, while other supporters have been singing songs of support.

This is despite an earlier party resolution to ban campaign T-shirts and posters due to their divisive nature.

Whittles joined political analyst Karima Brown to discuss this and other issues unfolding at the conference.

When you look at their behaviour; they've allowed the delegates to run the show.

I don't know why someone didn't go to NDZ to tell them not to sing in her name.

There's been no application of the rules when it comes to singing.

People have been openly displaying posters saying 'I support Cyril', or 'I support Dlamini-Zuma'.
