The ANC breakaway group has settled on SA Democratic Congress as its new name, spokesperson Mbulelo Ncedana said on Monday.
The movement, which plans to launch as a political party on December 16, will begin the process of registering the party on Monday morning, he said.
"We are busy with that this morning (Monday)," he said.
After a convention held in Sandton over the weekend, delegates from provinces proposed names and the interim steering committee, which includes former defence minister Terror Lekota, his deputy Mluleki George and former Gauteng premier Mbhazima Shilowa, made the decision.
The party's name has to be registered with the Independent Electoral Commission for it to contest next year's elections.
