While Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga faces a no-confidence vote, the ANC in Gauteng says that the only way for the province is to hold new elections.
For Tshwane, the party formally released its newly elected regional president, Dr. Kgosi Maepa, to be nominated to serve on the council and to be the leader of the opposition in the congregation.
"We do not want to go through the back door to lead that church through an unprincipled coalition," said Vice-Provincial President Panyaza Lesufi in a statement.
"We are convinced that if we go for elections, the ANC will be victorious, so the ANC calls for new elections, so that people can give a party of their choice a new, unambiguous mandate."
Lesufi said that political parties in Tshwane and Johannesburg had talked more about motions of no confidence than "serving our people".
"We are therefore of the opinion that the final resolution that will restore order and mental health in all these municipalities is to have a new mandate so that the ANC can have a clear mandate and if the ANC does not have that mandate, we will make way for those who have been given a clear mandate to govern those congregations. "
The ANC was of the opinion that the municipality of Tshwane was not functional and needed help.
"We appeal to all parties in the council who oppose corruption and mismanagement to support this motion."
The party would be a night watch on Wednesday and a march on Thursday.
The EFF said last week that it has submitted a vote of no confidence against Msimanga.

Party leader Julius Malema said that Msimanga was not consistent and had not approached them through relevant channels regarding the removal of city manager Moeketsi Masola.
Mosola received a letter of intent to suspend him by the Tshwane Metropolitan Council on Wednesday after he was recently involved in awarding an alleged irregular tender to engineering consultants GladAfrica, worth a reported R12bn.
The EFF said it knew that the city manager was being punished because it was suspected that he was the one who exposed the fact that Msimanga had hired the former Chief of Staff Marietha Aucamp of Tshwane.
Aucamp resigned in May after News24 announced that she did not have the correct qualifications for the job.

Msimanga is the choice of DA for the Prime Minister of Gauteng in the 2019 elections.
In Johannesburg, the ANC believed that the DA-led coalition had not provided the right service and financial performance between August 2017 and this month.
They criticized Mayor Herman Mashaba for not moving fast enough to tackle corruption.
