South Africa's ANC Postpones Party Election List Conference

South Africa’s ruling African National Congress postponed its conference on finalizing lists for elections next year to give provinces time to conclude the process, the party said.

The conference would be rescheduled to Jan. 4-5 from this weekend to accommodate the North West province, which hadn’t submitted its nominations, ANC acting spokesman Dakota Legeote said by phone. The conference had been delayed because of deep divisions within the party and allegations by some members of manipulation of the lists, City Press reported on Sunday.
