President Jacob Zuma may win a second term
2 December 2012
The nominations season, which reached a zenith on Saturday, shows that he has already secured more than the required votes for victory at the party’s conference in Mangaung later this month.
Zuma thus far has the support of 2 259 ANC delegates, slightly more than the 2 251 he needs to secure a second term.
Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe has thus far received 482 nominations for the position as president, while the nomination conferences in three provinces fell apart.
