South Africa’s Ramaphosa Leads in Nominations for ANC Leader: Poll

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – South Africa’s Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has taken a lead in party nominations for the next leader of the ruling African National Congress (ANC), securing the support of 65 percent of branches tallied so far, a poll showed.

Hundreds of ANC branches across South Africa are nominating their choice for party president and other senior positions ahead of a December conference where about 5,000 delegates sent by the branches will cast their votes.

The ANC’s next leader will probably become president of the country at a national election in 2019 given the party’s electoral dominance.
