SACP to announce key outcomes of central committee meeting
Party members have discussed a number of issues including a decline in ANC’s support at the polls.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Communist Party (SACP) is expected to make an announcement about the outcome of its 13th central committee meeting in Kempton Park today.
This is part of the party's three-day meeting where members are discussing recent political developments and mapping the way forward.
SACP leaders will today announce key outcomes from the party's first meeting since the 3 August election.
Over the past three days, central committee members have discussed a number of issues including a decline in the African National Congress' (ANC) support at the polls.
The SACP says it has heard a clear message from voters that the ANC and its alliance partners should no longer think their struggle credentials are an excuse for arrogance.
The party has also been critical of the Hawks alleged targeting of Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan over the controversial covert unit at the South African Revenue Service.
It has applauded Gordhan for not reporting to the Hawks and has encouraged him not to give in to pressure.
