The Progressive ANC Voters Network (PAVN) is a sub-party voting bloc organization that was formed by AIDS activist Zackie Achmat and other card-carrying members of the African National Congress on March 28, 2007. It is meant to push for greater representation and furtherance of progressivist ideals within the party.

Criticism[edit]

The creation of the network was initially criticized by leaders of the ANC[1] and the South African Communist Party.[2][3] However, the network's invitation to the President and NEC of the ANC[4] received a reply from the office of then-Secretary-General Kgalema Motlanthe (later ANC Deputy President and then President of South Africa) which indicated his support for the organization.[5]
