Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe has been chosen as the Western Cape ANC nominee for party president.

Cape Town - Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe has been chosen as the Western Cape ANC nominee for party president, provincial secretary Songezo Mjongile said on Thursday.

Motlanthe won by a small margin receiving 99 votes to President Jacob Zuma's 90.

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula was endorsed for the position of Secretary General with 96 delegates supporting him against current SG Gwede Mantashe's 85.

A revote was called for after nominees for the positions of deputy president, deputy secretary, chairperson and treasurer general failed to get an outright majority.

Delegates were gathered at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, where the provincial general council was being held, since 4pm on Wednesday. - Sapa
