The African National Congress has decided to send a high powered team to the Western Cape to beef up the party’s provincial executive committee.
ANC Spokesperson Brian Sokutu says the National Executive Committee made this decision on the first day of its two-day meeting that began in Essellen Park today.
Sokutu says the party takes full responsibility for the failure of its candidates to register in the Western Cape and regrets the outcome. However, it will redouble its efforts to win the elections next year.
The NEC also decided to withdraw its application in the Constitutional Court against the Independent Electoral Commission concerning the Western Cape by-elections process.
