sacpEWN reports that the SA Communist Party (SACP) and labour federation Cosatu in Gauteng say they have decided to launch their own election campaign for the 2019 elections without the ANC because they want to protect Gauteng from electoral capture.  

On Wednesday the two alliance partners announced the move, but denied it was part of the communist party's preparation for elections.  Earlier this year the SACP took a decision at its national congress to contest future elections.  It will be a first for the SACP and Cosatu to take the lead and campaign on their own.  The SACP's Jacob Mamabolo also said they believed this decision would give effect to the reconfigured alliance.
