Top six, PEC face-off

The New Age (Free State) - - FRONT PAGE - SIHLE MAVUSO sih­lem@the­newage.co.za

THE ANC top six could meet stiff re­sis­tance and pos­si­ble de­fi­ance at its sched­uled meet­ing with the em­bat­tled KZN pro­vin­cial ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee (PEC).

This emerged amid re­ports that the top six will refuse the PEC per­mis­sion to ap­peal Tues­day’s high court rul­ing declar­ing the KZNANC un­law­ful.

Two PEC mem­bers said the pro­vin­cial lead­er­ship was ready to defy the top six if or­dered not to ap­peal the rul­ing. The Pi­eter­mar­itzburg High Court ruled that the Novem­ber 2015 pro­vin­cial con­fer­ence which saw the elec­tion of Sihle Zikalala and his PEC was un­law­ful and void.

But one PEC mem­ber said he did not ex­pect the top six to pre­vent the PEC from ap­peal­ing the courts de­ci­sion. “To me, there is too much at stake and I don’t see the top six bar­ring the PEC from ap­peal­ing.”
