The South African Communist Party has confirmed that it will be campaigning for the African National Congress (ANC) in next year's elections, despite some past differences.
The Alliance Political Council briefed the media, on Tuesday, on the outcomes of its meetings convened from 8 July.
The council comprises ANC, National Office Bearers, the SACP, Cosatu, and Sanco.
Eyewitness News reporter Clement Manyathela has more on the outcomes of the meeting.
