The North West High Court in Mahikeng has dismissed an urgent application by aggrieved members of the African National Congress (ANC) seeking to have the 9th Provincial Conference of the ANC declared illegal.

Party members handed over court papers to both the ANC National Executive Committee and the newly elected provincial officials.

They contested the results of the provincial conference, the legitimacy of which is being questioned.

According to the affected members, there were violations at the provincial conference held in Rostenburg two weeks ago.

They wanted the court to ban the second phase of the regional conference, which is due to take place next weekend.
