SACP to contest elections independently
The SA Communist Party will contest elections on its own. The party on Saturday reaffirmed a 2007 congress decision to contest for state power‚ with its 1‚819 delegates successfully pushing for the move. The party's augmented central committee will draw up a roadmap to determine how the SACP will prepare to contest elections. However‚ the party will not immediately break away from the ANC or the tripartite alliance. It will argue for a reconfigured alliance - that all members of the alliance be treated equally and make governance decisions together.
