numsaEWN reports that the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) has been given the go ahead to register a political party after its attempts to register a workers' party were blocked in July by the Independent Electorate Commission due to a problem with the party's logo.  

The Socialist Revolutionary Workers’ Party (SRWP) will be registered to contest the general elections next year.  Structures are expected to be finalized in coming weeks with interim officials being put in place.  Numsa spokesperson, Phakamile Hlubi-Majola commented:  “We welcome the decision which is going to strengthen the work that we’ve already been doing on the ground.”
