MAHIKENG - North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo says he won&39;t resign until he has consulted with the party&39;s provincial executive committee (PEC).

The ANC&39;s PEC is holding an emergency meeting on Wednesday morning.

This follows weeks of protests and calls for his removal in the province in the wake of corruption allegations.

Mahumapelo maintains there&39;s a political conspiracy against him.

He strongly believes members of the ANC and EFF are on the same side.

In a statement on Tuesday night, the ANC in the North West welcomed his exit.

This follows an earlier announcement that Mahumapelo will no longer address reporters on Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday, Mahumapelo undertook to send a letter to the speaker of the provincial legislature by Friday -- without providing details.

He met President Cyril Ramaphosa last week after the ANC recommended that he step down.

Former premier of the province and the current chair of the National Council of Provinces, Thandi Modise, is being touted to replace Mahumapelo.
