Rustenburg - Newly appointed North West social development MEC Ontlametse Mochwari has resigned due to a technicality in the Electoral Act, the ANC said on Wednesday.

“The Electoral Act stipulates that we can only change our list to the legislature after a year. Due to this, honourable Mochwari resigned,” said provincial spokesman Oupa Matla.
