PAC gath­er­ing ruled un­of­fi­cial

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

A GATH­ER­ING or­gan­ised by a fac­tion of the Pan African­ist Congress (PAC) could take place but could not be called a “third PAC na­tional con­ven­tion”, Cape High Court Judge Den­nis Davis ruled yes­ter­day.

He said that he could not stop a group of peo­ple from meet­ing and dis­cussing is­sues, but that the PAC con­sti­tu­tion made no pro­vi­sion for a na­tional con­ven­tion.

His rul­ing fol­lowed an ur­gent ap­pli­ca­tion by the PAC to bar the fac­tion from call­ing the meet­ing the “third PAC na­tional con­ven­tion”. The fac­tion had an­nounced that the con­ven­tion would take place in Cape Town this week­end.
