Statement on ANC 53rd national conference

ETHICORE Political Consulting notes with interest the conclusion of the governing African National Congress’s 53rd national conference of the ANC held in city of Mangaung in South Africa’s Free State Province (16 – 20 December 2012).

We wish newly elected party officials well in the fulfillment of the duties and responsibilities and welcome those policy resolutions taken which contribute too strengthening the global positioning of the country and the conditions for achieving sustainable and inclusive national development.

In particular, this includes:

  • Commitments made to strengthen and develop the capacity and performance of the state, including through measures for improved conduct of public officials.
  • The endorsement of the National Development Plan and its integration with existing policies and programs.
  • The clarity offered thus far regarding the nationalization debate and the nature of state intervention in the economy.

We welcome and look forward to the opportunity of engaging with the new elected leadership and its representatives in Parliament and the state on the formulation and implementation of detailed plans in respect of these.
