The ANC leadership in KwaZulu-Natal will not change, delegates decided at the provincial congress in Newcastle.

Delegates at the congress unanimously decided on Friday night to retain the same leadership led by Zweli Mkhize and forgo voting.

However voting for additional provincial executive committee (PEC) members would go ahead on Saturday.

Mkhize would remain in his position as chairman. Deputy chairman Willie Mchunu, secretary Sihle Zikalala, deputy secretary Nomusa Dube and treasurer Peggy Nkonyeni would also stay in their positions.

The congress was in a closed session on Saturday where PEC member Senzo Mchunu was giving a presentation on strategy and tactics.

The delegates would break up into commissions later on Saturday and discuss the policy proposals that had been tabled.

Mkhize, who was previously the provinces finance minister, was elected to replace S’bu Ndebele as chairperson in 2008.
