Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League has publicly backed deputy party president Cyril Ramaphosa to become the country's next deputy president, the Sowetan reported on Friday.
“It's the right thing to do. It's the only way that the ANC can strengthen its internal democratic processes,” said African National Congress Youth League convenor Mzwandile Masina.
Ramaphosa was elected deputy ANC president at the ruling party's national elective conference in Mangaung in December, taking over from Kgalema Motlanthe, who remains the deputy president of the country.
The ANCYL wants Ramaphosa to take over from Motlanthe after the general elections next year. - Sapa
