JOHANNESBURG : The African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee (NEC) says its list of candidates for Parliament and provincial legislatures has been referred to the integrity commission for review.
The move follows criticism from members of the public and the ANC elders for including some individuals who are alleged to be involve in the wrong doing and state capture.
The party has defended the list since it was first published weeks ago after its submission to the Independent Electoral Commission.
ANC deputy general secretary Jessie Duarte said: “Natural justice is an important element of our jurisprudence.
It cannot be right that people make statements or that innocent until proven guilty is rubbish or nonsense. We won’t accept that emotive call.”
