[LISTEN] Tripartite Alliance appoints task team to restructure its partnership

A task team has been appointed to restructure the current partnership between the African National Congress (ANC) and its allies.

The governing party met with its alliance partners the South African Communist Party (SACP), Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) and the South African National Civic Organisation (Sanco) for the first time this week, since President Cyril Ramaphosa was elected president.

SACP Spokesperson Alex Mashilo explains just what this remodeling will entail.

A reconfigured alliance should function on the basis of democratic consensus seeking consultation on all aspects relating to our shared perspective of the national democratic revolution. No alliance partner, no individual leader must make decisions alone.

Alex Mashilo, SACP spokesperson

We agreed to have a secretarial task team to workout the rest of the modality.

General secretary of labour in Cosatu Bheki Ntshalintshali says there should be an independent decision making body.

We are still arguing as Cosatu for a political council that is supreme to the different organisations that exist. In other words, if we are to take a decision it means the three or four alliance partners must have a debate them, but when it goes to the political council it must be supreme in terms of taking decisions.
