Despite their absence the electoral commission which presided over the election said the number of remaining delegates gave the conference a quorum to conduct the elections according to the ANC's constitution. This allowed the conference to proceed, but when nominated for the top leadership, Masualle and his backers were not available to accept or decline.

Mabuyane was announced as the party's new chairperson this afternoon. Despite Masualle not indicating whether he is available to stand for election, he received seven votes.

Several outgoing provincial executive committee (PEC) members including Masualle and former ANCYL deputy president Andile Lungisa were whisked away by security. Lulama Ngcukaitobi was elected secretary with Helen Sauls-August his deputy secretary.
