Objectives and Benefits of the Progressive Citizens` Forum

A programme of dialogue

The objective of this new and exciting Progressive Citizens` Forum programme is to provide a platform for dialogue between the ANC, its leadership and the subscribers to the programme, as well as to maintain and enhance relationships between them.

At the same time, these regular contributions will help the movement meet its obligations and enable it carry out its important and historic mandate.
