ANC acting national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said the ANC had already filed papers to oppose the ruling.
Kodwa said the party would still allow the PEC’s reinstatement as it wanted to ensure unity to the party in the troubled platinum province, which has been engulfed in factional battles that saw its list conference being repeatedly postponed last year until earlier this year.
“We have filed papers last week already to oppose the ruling. But our intention as the ANC is to ensure that there is unity in North West, so whatever we do now must be in order to ensure that there is unity,” Kodwa said.
Last week, the high court ruled that the disbandment of the PEC by the ANC national executive committee last year was unlawful and set it aside, as its branches had not been consulted and no tangible reasons were provided for disbanding it.
