SACP Augmented Central Committee update and post-meeting press briefing
24 November 2018
The three day year-end plenary session of the SACP Central Committee has entered its second day in Benoni, Ekurhuleni. The Central Committee is the Party`s highest decision-making body when the National Congress is not in session. Central Committee meetings are held once every quarter. The last meeting of the year is augmented by an expanded delegation representing SACP provinces and districts, as well as the Young Communist League of South Africa.
Update on the programme of the meeting
The Annual Augmented Central Committee meeting is presently receiving presentations on the state of the South African economy and the international economic context. The meeting will combine its discussion of the Political Report with the discussion of the presentations on the economy, technological revolution and related disruption.
Following the political and economic discussions, the meeting will look at the state of the organisation in relation to the tasks at hand, both in the here and now and going forward in 2019. The Augmented Central Committee will therefore receive and discuss the State of the Organisation Report assessing the work and state of the Party, the state of the alliance and its reconfiguration process, the state of broader working class political organisation. In relation to all these considerations, the meeting will discuss the way forward with regard to the role of the Party and the working class in general in the economic and political situation of our country.
