Johannesburg - The ANC in Gauteng has asked its provincial election team (PET) to do an in-depth analysis of the election results, as echoed by Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba at the weekend.

“The ANC Gauteng provincial executive committee (PEC) met last night in Johannesburg to receive a high-level election report,” spokesman Nkenke Kekana said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The PEC tasked the PET to do an in-depth analysis and report back in one week.”

Kekana did not disclose the contents of the report.

Gigaba told reporters at Luthuli House on Sunday that a thorough analysis of the general election would be carried out to look at voting patterns across the country.

Kekana said the party was concerned by the party's drop in support.

“A thorough analysis of the results will help us to address the concerns of voters across the province,” he said.

The PEC decided on the candidates it would send to the Gauteng legislature, National Assembly, and the National Council of Provinces. Kekana did not disclose any names.

He said the party had not yet discussed the premier post in Gauteng.

“As per our conference resolution on premierships, the PEC will discuss and recommend three names to be considered by the national executive committee.”
