MIDRAND - African National Congress (ANC) delegates are in a closed commission to discuss one of the founding documents of the party’s 2012 policy conference in Gallagher Estate, Midrand.

The ruling party is examining its strategy and tactics, and how they want the party to change the country.

Delegates split into 11 commissions, but they will be discussing the same strategy and tactics.

Their different discussions will then be drawn together into a plenary session to create a coherent outcome.

The documents is what the ANC wants to achieve through what it calls a “national democratic revolution.”

It will also look at what the party says are “forces that are opposed to the party.” 

The party proposed the idea of a “second transition”.

It said the first transition was to rid the country of apartheid laws and to tackle unemployment and poverty.

About 3, 500 delegates made up of ANC branches, leagues, alliances and business people are attending the conference.

However, decisions on policy will not be made this week.

In his opening address on Monday, ANC president Jacob Zuma said radical economic change was needed.
