Pretoria - The ANC will not discuss e-tolling at its two-day national executive committee (NEC) meeting in Pretoria, spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said on Friday.
"The ANC does not micro-manage government. There are no government issues on the table," he told reporters.
He said the ANC did agree that all South Africans needed to contribute to the maintenance of the roads.
"We have long agreed as ANC that there is a need that all of us keep our roads spick-and-span. For us to do so, we need whatever contributions we can get from all South Africans."
The meeting would culminate in a door-to-door campaign in Ekurhuleni, where all members of the NEC would be present.
"This is the first day... and Sunday the entire NEC will do door-to-door elections work in the Ekurhuleni area of Gauteng," he said.
