SACP: IF ANC IMPLODES, IT WILL BE REPLACED AS ALLIANCE LEADER

JOHANNESBURG – The South African Communist Party (SACP) says that if the African National Congress (ANC) collapses steps will have to be taken to replace it as the leader of the tripartite alliance.

The Communist Party is holding its 14th national congress this week in Boksburg.

The SACP seems to be convinced that the ANC will fall apart if it continues on its current path.

“If the ANC collapses, and there’s no guarantee that it won’t, because, on its current trajectory, it’s in serious problems.”

The party’s Jeremy Cronin is even questioning if the governing party’s elective conference will take place in December.

“If it carries on its current trajectory, heaven knows what would emerge in December if there’s a December elective conference. Even that is something we as the Communist Party, we’re not necessarily taking for granted.”

He says if the party collapses, it will have to be replaced.

The SACP has already warned it will not remain in the ANC-led alliance if the governing party elects a faction at its elective conference later this year.
