Supporters of President Jacob Zuma are demanding that ANC MP Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma be appointed as the interim president as one of the conditions for him to step down.
Earlier on Friday reports claimed that Zuma had provided key members of the ANC with a list of requirements if he were to step down as president of South Africa.
Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni believes the option to appoint Dlamini Zuma as interim president should not be presented along factional lines.
But on Tuesday night, on the eve of the meeting, Zuma announced that he would establish a commission of inquiry into state capture.
Another NEC meeting is expected in the next few weeks.
Magashule also confirmed that Zuma will attend the ANC's 106th anniversary celebration on Saturday.
