50th National Conference: Credentials Report


The National Executive Committee determined a limit of 3000 delegates for the Conference. In
line with the Contitution, which stipulates that 90% of voting delegates should
come from branches, a number of 2700 was set aside for branch delegates. It was
then possible to adhere to proportional representation in relation to membership
statistics submitted and verified by the Organising Department and the
respective provinces. A political decision was taken to divide the remaining 10%
(300) as follows:

Women's League 53
Youth League 53
PEC 180
ANC departments 14

The nomination of delegates was left to the discretion of the provinces.
