What’s driving the conflict
1 Branch meeting registers were manipulated to exclude other members from participating. 2 So-called signature campaigns – such as when branch leaders get members to sign attendance registers at their homes without physically attending branch meetings. 3 Senior leaders dumping the candidates preferred by branches and communities. 4 Branch members being given money to support specific candidates. 5 Confusion about guidelines for cases where people who are not ANC members are preferred by communities. 6 Leaders changing lists to meet the quotas of 50% female representation and 20% young people under the age 35.
