EAST LONDON - The much-anticipated meeting of the newly elected ANC NEC gets under way in East London on Wednesday.
Secretary-general Ace Magashule said the only item on the agenda is the 8 January statement.
Giving media preview of the inaugural ANC NEC meeting, party Secretary General Ace Magashule was asked if President Jacob Zuma’s future & ‘2 centres of power’ were on the agenda. He says there’s ‘no matter to be discussed. There are no 2 centres of power, only the ANC’ ANC106 pic.twitter.com/vlZ1BPelTo— Thulasizwe Simelane (@ThulasSims) January 10, 2018
It was expected that the NEC would discuss President Jacob Zuma&39;s future, but Magashule said this was not on the agenda.
Zuma&39;s term doesn&39;t officially end until 2019 when national elections will be held, but he could be removed early through a motion of no confidence in Parliament or by the NEC.
