ANC 2017 Elective Conference

Almost all of the Communist party are out of the NEC: Karima Brown

After hours of delay, the 54th African National Congress Elective Conference wrapped up in the early hours of this morning.

They announced the new members of the national executive committee (NEC). Political analyst and 702 host Karima Brown says that is difficult to tell if the NEC is weighted heavily in favor towards Cyril Ramaphosa or Jacob Zuma.

Brown says that it is interesting to see that many members of the Communist party fell away from the ANC. She adds that their seems to be a mixture of members who are split in terms of loyalty.

What is really interesting here is the power balance between some of the provinces. The first observation for me is that almost all of the Communist party are out of the NEC.

That will make it difficult to give the impression that there will be an attempt to build closer relations with the alliance.
