The South African Communist Party's (SACP) believes that retaining the majority of its leadership is in the best interest of unity and the tripartite alliance.
The Communist party is holding its 14th national congress in Boksburg this week, where it will elect new leaders and tackle issues affecting the alliance, reports EWN's Clement Manyathela.
SACP general-secretary Blade Nzimande says the next six months leading up to ANC's December elective conference will be 'unpredictable'.
Nzimande plans to stay on in his current position, while the party’s first deputy general secretary Jeremy Cronin will not be standing for reelection.
At the same time, some delegates have questioned certain leaders within the SACP's top brass.
Manyathela says the SACP has been raising concerns about the state of the tripartite alliance for many years and has long complained about being sidelined by the ANC in policy discussions.
