ancBDLive reports that labour federation Cosatu said on Tuesday it was not prepared to take a public stance on the leadership succession question within the African National Congress (ANC).  

At this stage such a stance would only serve to fracture the federation and cause divisions in the tripartite alliance, it said.  Cosatu held a one-day special central executive committee meeting on Monday at which it had been expected to give further clarity on its stance on the ANC succession issue.  A number of large Cosatu affiliates have been pushing for the federation to keep to ANC precedent, whereby Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa would be endorsed to take over the Presidency.  Affiliates would now continue discussions on succession based on various criteria, among them a background in the working class movement, general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali said.
