The African National Congress (ANC) has met the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC)’s deadline for submitting its list of candidates for the 2021 local elections.

ANC deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte on Wednesday said it was the party’s most diverse list yet; it includes young people, the LGBTQI+ community, and persons with disabilities.

About 46% of its list consists of women.

The ANC is fielding candidates for all 4468 wards and 257 candidates for the metros.

Its new method of selecting candidates gives people from the different cities, villages and towns the final say on who should represent them.

Mandy Wiener interviewed Eyewitness News Senior Politics Journalist Tshidi Madia (scroll up to listen).

They also removed people from their lists… facing corruption charges… They said they’ve done their due diligence…
