The remaining 2 positions were close calls with Tasneem Motara becoming the new provincial deputy beating Nomathemba Mogkethi with 557 votes to 552, a difference of just 5 votes. The remaining position Provincial Treasurer was won by Morakane Mosupye who beat Paul Mojapelo, with 556 to 555 votes, a difference of just 1 vote.
Lesufi will be pleased with the outcome of the conference as his slate won 3 of the 5 positions, while the Maile slate won the other 2 positions. Lesufi and his elected team have a touch job ahead, as they will try to get the ANC back to running the whole province as they have lost a number of key Metro's in the province in recent times.
