Party secretary-general Ace Magashule said the lekgotla tasked the party’s deployees to implement the resolutions of its 2017 national conference in full.
“It was agreed that all deployees will ensure that the resolutions of the 54th national conference will be fully implemented. In this regard, the ANC NEC lekgotla agreed to expand the mandate of the South African Reserve Bank beyond price stability to include growth and employment,” Magashule said.
“It also directed the ANC government to consider constituting a task team to explore quantity-easing measures to address intergovernmental debts, to make funds available for developmental purposes,” Magashule said. “These measures should consider inflationary impact on the currency and the poor, and all must be done to cushion them.”
President Cyril Ramaphosa is considered a party deployee because of the country’s party-based electoral system.
