This formed part of discussions on the outcomes of the party's upcoming national conference. 

The statement says they feel there is a strong public perception that the ANC isn't focusing on the real issues of service delivery and improving the lives of people. 

This is why they've agreed that a new president and deputy president are needed to refocus the party and ultimately change the country's future.
