PRETORIA: The Ndelebe appeals panel report recommended the suspension of the Eastern Cape PEC.

The report, compiled by NEC member Sbu Ndebele, called for the party to set aside the outcome of the conference, which it said should not have gone ahead after widespread resistance and violent clashes.

The Ndelebe appeals panel report recommended the suspension of the Eastern Cape PEC. The report further recommends a re-run of the Eastern Cape Provincial Conference within three months.

In December, the court application to nullify the ANC Eastern Cape PEC was dismissed with costs. No reasons were given.

The case was brought by 11 party members who were dissatisfied with the election results which named Oscar Mabuyane as the new ANC EC chairperson.

Meanwhile, ANC members of some 28 branches in the Free State have given the ANC NEC until the end of the day to disband the Eastern Cape PEC elected last month or face a court challenge.
