National Conference of the African National Congress

The National Congress of the African National Congress is a party congress that is held every five years. It is the organization that elects new, or re-elects incumbent members to the National Executive Committee, the highest decision-making body within the party.


Prior to the banning of the ANC by the South African government in 1960, the National Congresses were held annually. Following the banning, the ANC held a number of National Consultative Conferences abroad. When the ANC was unbanned, it held its first national conference in 32 years in Durban (1991); from 1991 to 1997, the conferences were held every three years. At the 1997 conference in Mafikeng, future conferences would be held every five years.
