Free State ANC embarking on programs for 2014 Elections



The Free State ANC Provincial Executive Committee has formed programs that will uplift the service delivery of the province in preparation of the upcoming elections.

The 35 PEC members that were elected at the 7th provincial conference in Welkom on 12 May want to establish and rectify election structures in the province. The PEC will visit all the municipalities from 27 May. Premier Ace Magashule will start his visit at Warden under Dihlabeng Municipality.

The spokesperson Thabo Meeko says it is to undertake an audit of incomplete projects in the province. He says the door to door visits in all towns will be focusing on toilets, incomplete and unoccupied houses. “Ward Councillors will be convening public meetings. Critical municipality posts will be filled to fast track service delivery. The municipalities should re-align their budgets to service delivery priorities as raised by communities,” he says.

On 29 June the provincial ANC will be launching the 22 000 Volunteers Brigades at Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium in Botshabelo. This is in preparation of the upcoming national and provincial elections. Meeko says the volunteers will be the ANC foot soldiers in combat to delivering the victory for the 2014 elections.

He says the volunteers’ tasks will be to remind the people to return the ANC back to power and lead the country on their behalf. “Any person can be a volunteer, it is not about the age or whether a person is unemployed or not,” says Meeko. He continues saying that these programs is to reaffirm the ANC as a leader over society and taking responsibility over government.
