ANC benefited from taxpayer-funded publicity in 2011 – Madonsela

Public protector rules the party ‘confused the public’ in municipal elections; hands down recommendations to maintain clarity between party and state activities.

There is "no conclusive evidence" to support allegations of abuse of state resources to advance the ANC's 2011 municipal election campaign, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's office has found. However, in releasing her report, entitled "State and Party Colours" yesterday, Madonsela did find that other political parties were prejudiced in terms of advertising and that allegations of conflation of party and state were substantiated.
