ANC delegates attending day two of the ninth elective conference in KwaZulu-Natal will have to choose from 10 nominated officials when they cast their votes for new leaders on Saturday.
The nominees include Sihle Zikalala and Mdumiseni Ntuli, who are hoping to make a comeback on the list of five leaders.
Zikalala will defend his position as provincial chair against Sboniso Duma, while Bheki Mtolo and Mdumiseni Mtolo will lock horns for the job of provincial secretary.
For deputy secretary, Simpho Hlomuka and Nontembeko Boyce’s names will appear on the ballot paper.
The name of beleaguered eThekwini politician Zandile Gumede was initially raised for the position of treasurer. However, a member from her region told the delegates she would abide by the step-aside resolution and not stand for election.
Nomusa Dube, who was nominated from the floor, failed to meet the threshold. Ambitious businessman Sandile Zungu, who was nominated for chair, “duly declined” his nomination.
