ANC satisfied with hearing on Congress of the People application

10 December 2008

The African National Congress is satisfied with the hearing today (10 December 2008) of its urgent application to prevent the use of the name `Congress of the People` by a new political party.

Judgment has been reserved in the matter, which was heard in the Pretoria High Court.

The ANC is grateful for the opportunity to state its case - that this new political party should not be able to claim the exclusive use of a name that rightly belongs to an historic moment in our history.

The ANC will await the decision of the court.
