ANC GAUTENG PEC TO CONSIDER NAMES OF CANDIDATES FOR EMFULENI MAYOR
The ANC Gauteng Provincial Executive Committee is set to process, consider and agree on the name for the party’s mayoral candidate for Emfuleni Local Municipality following the resignation of Comrade Jacob Khawe from that post.
Comrade Khawe has since take up his full time post as the ANCGP’s Provincial Secretary. The PEC is expected to announce the party’s preferred candidate after completing internal processes including engagement with structures of the movement in the region.
The law allows for the election of a mayor within 21 days after the incumbent vacates the post.
In the interim the member of the Mayoral Committee for Finance Councillor Robert Thema is acting as mayor.
