THE ANC in the Free State yes­ter­day said its pro­vin­cial con­fer­ence sched­uled for the week­end had been post­poned.

Pro­vin­cial spokesper­son Thabo Meeko said the much an­tic­i­pated elec­tive con­fer­ence had been placed on ice un­til fur­ther no­tice.

Meeko said there was an ur­gent need to unify the party in the prov­ince be­fore the prov­ince could pro­ceed.

The de­ci­sion fol­lows two marches that took place last week and this week by mem­bers who were at log­ger­heads over the pro­vin­cial task team ap­pointed to steer the party for­ward.

“We want to give the ANC branches time to unite the party,” he said.

Meeko said they would make an an­nounce­ment about a new date of the pro­vin­cial con­fer­ence in due course.
