The region of Dr W.B. Rubusan of the African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape will hold its election conference in East London on Saturday.
The region became the last to hold its conference in the province after some disgruntled members sued the region for allegedly manipulating branches.
Some general meetings of the branches, where allegations of participation in meetings of the dead and prisoners were made, were marred by violence.
The position of chairman is contested by former MP and current deputy mayor Princess Faku, former regional treasurer Nseda Kumbaka and chairman of branch 35 of Lunga Nkam branch.
Regional Coordinator Antonio Carels says they are ready for any opportunity, including a possible ban on the conference.
“Where we sit as the ANC, there is no such thing yet. If there are any, then of course we have a legal team that will definitely be on standby to deal with issues as they come up. But at this point we can note that there are no legal issues preventing us from continuing our conference. So we are continuing the conference this weekend, ”Karels said.
