South Africa: ANC decides to recall Zuma:
South Africa's ruling ANC party will officially ask that President Jacob Zuma step down after he refused to resign, media reports say.
The reported decision to "recall" Mr Zuma followed marathon discussions by senior party officials that lasted into the wee hours of Tuesday.
In case Mr Zuma, 75, still doesn't budge, he'll face a vote of confidence in parliament that he's expected to lose.
He has been leader since 2009 but has been dogged by corruption allegations.
The ANC hasn't formally affirmed its strategies, but party sources have described them to South African media outlets and Reuters news agency.
Mr Zuma has resisted raising pressure to quit since December when Cyril Ramaphosa replaced him as leader of the ANC.
It's unclear how Mr Zuma will react to the formal request to step down, and this is expected to be issued later on Tuesday.
Earlier, Mr Ramaphosa left the meeting of the ANC's national executive committee to travel to Mr Zuma's residence, where he is said to have told the president he would be recalled if he didn't step down. He afterwards returned to the ANC conclave.
