CAPE TOWN - The African National Congress (ANC) provincial executive committee (PEC) will meet with some of the party's national leaders on Monday in a bid to resolve factionalism in its Western Cape structures.

ANC President Jacob Zuma and his deputy Cyril Ramaphosa are among the national working committee members who held a series of meetings over the weekend.

Following a series of meetings across the Western Cape, the PEC and several top leaders will discuss how to address the party's internal battles in the province.

Acting ANC provincial chairperson Khaya Mgaxa says concerns include the recent disbandment of leadership structures of one of the province's biggest ANC regions.

“After the meeting that saw Dullah Omar disbanded, three other regions joined them in raising a sharp complaint over the disbandment.”

The structure was dissolved amid claims of insubordination and factionalism.

Meanwhile, ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa says the meetings were also used to determine the state of the party in the Western Cape and to look at ways in which the party can reclaim the province in the 2019 general election.
