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.

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.
