The ANC Youth League has officially called for the ANC to have an early national conference to elect new leadership for the party.
In a statement released this afternoon, it says the party needs to change direction urgently after the results of the local government elections.
The league also says that this early conference must not be contested and strong leadership must emerge.
The ANCYL's Mondli Mkhize says, “We want an elective conference, that’s why we are calling for an early conference. 
“A conference in any event is due in December 2017. We are saying if we could have it June that would be better because it would give use more time to recover towards elections in 2019.
