The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) says despite differences remaining among the tripartite alliance partners, it will support the African National Congress (ANC) in the upcoming Local Government Elections (LGE).

The elections are scheduled for November 1, 2021.

Cosatu is in the midst of its three-day Central Committee.

Cosatu President Zingiswa Losi says, “Understand and appreciate the challenges that we have. So voting for the ANC is a Congress decision that we took in 2018 which is going to be reviewed in the next Congress in 2022.”

“But in between, we have a responsibility to make that assessment so that when we move forward we are able to make an informed decision. So voting for the ANC and campaigning for the ANC for its victory is a mandate from the Congress that we had,” says Losi.

Cosatu: We continue to support the ANC

The labour federation also announced that it will urgently meet the South African Communist Party (SACP) to discuss its support for the ANC in future elections.
