Mbalula says ANC list 'open to changes' as IEC rejects objections
Johannesburg - Emboldened by the IEC’s rejection of 29 objections to the ANC national list, the ANC’s head of elections Fikile Mbalula has reiterated that the ANC’s list remains open to changes.
Mbalula said the ANC’s integrity committee had been tasked with investigating the ethical questions that surround the nominations of various members for Parliament and provincial legislatures.
The former minister of sports was speaking on the Eusebius MckaiserShow on Radio702 and insisted that the ethical standing of party members needs to be tested by the integrity committee.
“The electoral commission decided today that there is nothing wrong about the ANC’s list and rejected all those objections. The ANC must do what it is supposed to do based on its processes. If the integrity committee comes to the conclusion even after the elections that a certain person does not pass the test and does not represent the ANC, that decision will be taken,” said Mbalula.
