South Africa’s ruling party, African National Congress (ANC), on Saturday said they resolved to build a bond between government, business and the people to take the country forward.

The party’s highest decision making body outside congress, National Executive Committee (NEC) held its first ordinary meeting after the 54th national conference on January 18-19 in Pretoria. On Saturday the ANC General Secretary Ace Magashule issued a statement about the meeting.

“The meeting agreed on the need to forge a social compact among government, business, labor and communities for economic recovery, drawing on the resolutions of the 54th national conference,” said Magashule.

The NEC discussed the political and economic environment in the country. They also resolved to engage President Jacob Zuma to ensure there is effective coordination between government and the party.

Jacob Zuma is the president of the country while Cyril Ramaphosa is the president of the ANC.

Magashule also said, “The NEC agreed that the ANC must act decisively and with determination to rebuild the bond of trust between our people and the movement, restore the dignity of our movement, and reclaim the moral legitimacy of our movement.”

The ANC’s December conference resolved to engage the people in various parts of the country to restore lost faith. The NEC also elected a 20 member party national working committee to carry out its decisions and party work. Enditem
