ANC 2017 Elective Conference

No certainty if voting discrepancy has been resolved

The public will find out on Wednesday whether a closed plenary has resolved issues surrounding 68 'missing' votes in the final tally of the African National Congress (ANC) top six.

The steering committee met on Tuesday to discuss claims that some votes for the party's leadership disappeared.

Political analyst Karima Brown has more on the matter.

We are going to hear this morning whether the matter was dealt with at plenary.

Karima Brown, political analyst

Since this morning I have been made to understand that lawyers are on standby in case the political process inside conference fails. They will then lodge papers here in Gauteng.

Karima Brown, political analyst

I can't say with certainty whether the plenary discussion has taken place, what I do know definitely is that if there is no release in plenary then lawyers have been advised to lodge court papers.
