ANC 2017 Elective Conference

Lawyer says 'Nasrec 68' to decide on court action after ANC plenary verdict

A lawyer representing the so-called Nasrec 68 says his clients will wait until ANC's plenary takes a decision on the missing votes before possibly pursuing legal action.

Attorney Dexter Selepe says legal papers have already been drafted and his clients will decide if they wish to file an urgent court application based on the plenary outcome.

This comes amid debate over the omission of 68 votes from the overall ANC top six results.

EWN's Mandy Wiener reports that the 68 ANC delegates could face internal disciplinary action should they take this matter to court.

At the current moment, there is no court action. The papers are ready in the event that they chose to do so.

They've drafted legal papers and sent a letter of demand to the steering committee and to the chairperson saying these votes must be considered and counted.

They're waiting for the plenary to decide and only then will they go to court on some kind of an urgent basis if they feel they could.
