Durban - The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal says it is meeting this weekend to select three names of its leaders from which its National Executive Committee (NEC) will appoint premier of the province.
However, ANC Youth League in the province had made it clear that its mother body’s provincial chairperson Sihle Zikalala should ascend to the position.
ANC provincial spokesperson Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu said it was not automatic that provincial chairperson becomes a premier.
“A premier is a deployment of the NEC just like a chairperson of a region is not automatically a mayor of that district.
“So we must sit down as provincial leadership and send those names to the NEC to sit down, engage and decide,” said Simelane-Zulu.
