The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the African National Congress (ANC) says it expects its members in parliament to vote according to the decision of the Caucus of the party.
In the post NEC statement the party announced that their members who decide to vote against its parliamentary caucus will be breaking the rules of the movement:
- counter-revolutionary forces;
- a political organisation or party other than an organisation or party in alliance with the ANC in a manner contrary to the aims, policies and objectives of the ANC;
The party was responding to the calls made by some of the struggle stalwarts who called on members to vote according to their conscious in a motion against President Jacob Zuma in parliament.
