The Gauteng High Court sitting in Pretoria has reserved judgment on an urgent application to execute or enforce last week's ruling to overturn the dissolution of the ANC North West provincial executive committee (PEC).

Last week, Judge Fayeeza Kathree-Setiloane handed down judgment in the High Court in Johannesburg, ordering the ANC to reinstate Supra Mahumapelo's disbanded PEC within two days.Her judgment meant embattled ANC provincial secretary Mahumapelo could return to office, while the ANC sought a political solution and appealed certain sections of her ruling.

Advocates Dali Mpofu and Tembeka Ngcukaitobi, who continued with their representation of Mahumapelo, won the first hurdle when they successfully argued that the matter is urgent.End of term"When the judgment was granted last Wednesday on the 6th, within 24 hours, they filed an application for leave to appeal.

They had 15 days to do so but they did it within 24 hours, so they can't say the application and its implications are not urgent," said Mpofu on Tuesday.
