The National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa), the largest trade union in the country by numbers, is launching its long-awaited worker’s party, the Socialist Revolutionary Workers Party (SRWP) in December but still has to decide whether to contest the 2019 election. The SACP, part of the ruling tripartite alliance with the ANC and the Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu), is also mulling contesting the polls independently of the governing party. Should it decide to contest the general election in 2019 , the workers party and the SACP, which were allies before Numsa was dismissed from Cosatu, will be scrambling for the same votes to the left of the country’s political divide. The party would also take on the EFF, which has sought to fashion itself as a leftist socialist party. The Numsa-linked initiative could also attract sections of the ANC aligned to former president Jacob Zuma, who are unhappy about the trajectory of the governing party under President Cyril Ramaphosa.
