CREDENTIALS COMMITTEE REPORT
ON DELEGATES

The NEC had determined a limit of 3,000
delegates for the Conference. In line with the Constitution, which stipulates
that 90% of voting delegates should come from branches, 2 700 were set
aside for branch delegates. It was not however possible to adhere strictly
to proportional representation as statistics provided by the regional offices
could not all be relied upon to be accurate. A political solution to this
problem was therefore arrived at by the NEC, with the agreement of the
regions, which allocated total delegations to regions. Distribution to
the branches was left to the discretion of the RECs.

Delegates were categorised into Participating Delegates, which were
further categorised into Voting and Non-voting; Observers, and Others.
