In the party's 105-year history, this succession contest has so far proven to be the most hotly contested and conflict-ridden.
Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa is pitted against former African Union Commission chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma as they seek to succeed President Jacob Zuma as the party chief in the run-up to the General Election in 2019.
The elective conference will be a defining moment for the party and its outcome will have profound implications for South Africa.
