The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) has chosen not to take sides in the battle for ANC leadership between the party's president Thabo Mbeki and its deputy president Jacob Zuma.
"We will seek to work with whoever is democratically elected and will formally request an urgent meeting with the new ANC leaders after the election," said TAC secretary Mark Heywood.
He was addressing a TAC press conference, after the TAC's NEC meeting in Johannesburg yesterday, on the upcoming conference.
Although the TAC had put up posters supporting deputy president Phumzile Mlambo Ngcuka - a Mbeki supporter - Heywood stressed it did not mean that they supported the Mbeki camp. - Sapa
