Pretoria, Dec 12 (P L) The big challenge at the 54th National Conference of the African National Congress (ANC), scheduled to begin on December 16, will be preventing the division of that veteran antiapartheid organization turned into a political party, according to local analysts.
Before the beginning of that major event that will elect the new ANC leadership, two candidates are nearly tied in their aspirations to become the president of the ruling party: the experienced politician Nkosozana Dlamini Zuma and Vice-President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The similar support received by Dlamini Zuma and Ramaphosa in the ANC representations in all nine South African provinces has prevented experts to make an accurate prediction about who might be the winner.

Last weekend, the two candidates participated in a series of rallies in several cities of the country, while their respective vote-catching groups continue to work in the provinces to win more support for their candidates.
