Naledi Pandor, who he had endorsed as his running partner towards the party’s elective conference has agreed to make way for Lindiwe Sisulu.

The top six is as follows:

President: Cyril Ramaphosa

Deputy President: Lindiwe Sisulu

Secretary-General: Senzo “Mavengwane” Mchunu

Deputy Secretary-General: Zingiswa Losi

Tresurer General: Paul Mashatile

National Chairperson: Gwede Mantashe

Altogether 5240 ANC delegates are said to be attending the conference and 4731 which is 90% of the delegates have been elected to vote for the new party leadership.
