Johannesburg - While some organisations have been critical of ANC lists of representatives to Parliament and provincial legislatures, they have not formally objected to the candidates nominated to stand.
This emerged on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s deadline set by the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) to allow the public to submit objections against those candidates who don’t qualify to be elected.
ANC Veterans’ League president Snuki Zikalala said their organisation had not discussed the submission of objections to the electoral body.
Zikalala was doubtful if the league would meet to discuss the matter ahead of the IEC deadline later on Tuesday, but hopeful the ANC national executive committee would consider the matter at its meeting on Monday.
“We still appeal to the individuals to use their conscience and withdraw their names,” Zikalala said.
