“Now, you may recall that at the last National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of our Party, the NWC was given the authority of NEC to make certain decisions or to conclude certain processes which rightfully are within the authority of the NEC, but that authority was ceded to the NWC to make these decisions. So, we have invoked that authority given to the NWC in adopting these resolutions for the creation of the Standing Committees.”
