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.
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.
