ANC members to form part of SADC observer mission

18 June 2008

The African National Congress has noted a report on Reuters suggesting that the organisation will send a contingent of 1,000 people to observe the Zimbabwean run-off elections.

The ANC wishes to correct this report.

The ANC will be sending observers as part of the 400-strong SADC observer mission. The ANC`s contribution to this mission includes 14 Members of Parliament and 15 others.

The ANC remains committed to contributing in whatever way it can, within the ambit of multilateral institutions like SADC, towards a successful and credible run-off election.
