Her name is high on the ANC list, as is that of ANC chairman Baleka Mbete. Dlamini-Zuma’s acceptance could mean she is ready to return home before her term of office at the AU expires in 2016. Mbete was tipped to become deputy president of the country in 2009 but was forced to resign when Kgalema Motlanthe accepted the position a few minutes before the first sitting of parliament. Mbete served as deputy president of the country following the recall of former president Thabo Mbeki in 2008. Top of the ANC list for parliament is Zuma with 5175 votes, followed by Cyril Ramaphosa with 4322 votes. Ramaphosa is expected to replace Motlanthe in government after the polls. Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba is third, followed by Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe and Sport Minister Fikile Mbalula. *Source Times Live      ]]>

    It is a wise move by the ruling party to nominate a person of Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma @ least we ll have a person of high integrity and principled,it would be a good move for her to replace the current president if we really wanna achieve two thirds.
