Cape Town - The ANC has distanced itself from the Professionals' league that was formed recently amid divisions and wranglings in the party.
The ANC Professionals' League had said last year it wanted to register with the office of the Secretary-General, Ace Magashule, to be one of the leagues of the party.
But the ruling party said it did not recognise the ANCPL, and it has only three leagues in its fold.
These were the ANC Youth League, the Women's League and the Veterans League.
The party said there was no professional league in its structures.
