The 44th National Conference of the ANC was held in Bloemfontein from 17-18 December 1955. The conference was shorter than normal because the Bloemfontein City Council prevented the delegates from convening on the 16th, a public holiday.
The ANC is in an alliance with the South African Communist Party (SACP) and the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). Each Alliance partner is an independent organisation with its own constitution, membership and programmes. The Alliance is founded on a common commitment to the objectives of the National Democratic Revolution, and the need to unite the largest possible cross-section of South Africans behind these objectives.
