State accused of siding with PAC faction

PAN Africanist Congress (PAC) president Letlapa Mphahlele has accused state institutions – parliament and the Electoral Commission (IEC) – of siding with the party's other faction, led by Alton Mphethi.

This comes as the warring factions battle over control of the party less than two weeks before the May 7 elections.
