ANC WELCOMES THE PRETORIA HIGH COURT JUDGEMENT ON THE FAILED ATTEMPT TO NULLIFYING 54th ELECTIVE CONFERENCE

The African National Congress welcomes the Pretoria High Court judgement on the failed attempt to nullify the 54th National Elective Conference.

The attempts by a businessman from KwaZulu-Natal for the court to set aside the election of the ANC’s top six leaders would have had huge ramifications for our Constitution and the functionality of the organisation in its entirety.

We note and applaud court's decision to dismiss this frivolous attempt seeking to damage the ANC reputation.

The ANC is equally pleased that the court has ordered the applicant to pay the legal costs of the case.

Yesterday's judgement sends a strong message to the members who believe that the courts are the only way to resolve internal matters of the movement.

The ANC is of the view that if the actions of members are left unattended, they will create a chaotic precedent that could paralyse the democratic processes within our organisation. The ANC calls on its members to desist from this practise.
