The African National Congress (ANC) National Working Committee (NWC) will be visiting the North West on Wednesday to quell internal tensions, with some members in the province apparently wanting Premier Supra Mahumapelo to be recalled.
There are reports that some ANC members of the provincial legislature would have voted with the opposition on a motion of no confidence in the premier which would have been held on Tuesday.
The motion was postponed by the speaker.
The visit by the ANC’s national leadership in the North West is aimed at intervening in what is called a political crisis in the province.
Those opposing Mahumapelo say the crisis is such that, it has even affected performance at both the provincial government and the party.
They say if an urgent intervention is not carried out, the ANC might lose next year’s general elections.
The national leadership is expected on Wednesday, to have an audience with the party’s provincial executive committee, ANC MPL’s, alliance partners and representatives of all the party’s leagues in the province.
