ANC disbands Western Cape PEC: What does it mean for its role in the province?

Western Cape ANC PEC
The ANC national executive committee says it is concerned about the functioning of the PEC due to ongoing internal squabbles.

The African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee has disbanded its provincial executive committee in the Western Cape .

In a statement, the committee said that the provincial structure's mandate had already ended and that it was concerned about the functioning of the PEC, with on-going internal squabbles playing out in public.

In the meantime, an interim committee would be set up to run ANC affairs in the province.

Joanne Joseph spoke to the South African Foreign Policy Initiative's senior researcher Sanusha Naidoo to find out what this means for the party as the opposition in the Western Cape.

I think essentially, it weakens their position as the official opposition in the province.

Sanusha Naidoo, Senior researcher - South African Foreign Policy Initiative

I think the mother body doesn't have any kind of traction and cohesiveness. You can't ignore what happens at sub-national level. It permeates... you can't ignore the fact that we are engaging in a political party that just seems to be, at every front, in a state of crisis. It is unable to even govern internally and this is now beginning to permeate and manifest itself within the different structures.
