Contradictions within both the Tripartite Alliance and the ANC itself are not atypical. Even old political parties in stable Western democracies, such as the French Parti Socialiste, have different tendencies within themselves. At this stage, the reformists in the ANC have the upper hand. The less the governing party needs its left wing to maintain power, the less attention it will pay to that group’s demands. The reformists are using their position of influence, which is derived from the posts they occupy in government and the current economic world order, which favours neoliberalism, to advance their agenda.
Is it unacceptable for the ANC leadership to assert itself as the main alliance partner and resist attempts by its ‘junior’ partners to revert to what it sees as budget straining socialist policies?
