The long awaited inaugural conference of the newly formed Congress of the People (COPE) got off to a good start with over 4000 COPE representatives gathering in Bloemfontein.
The registration process for the conference started at the Vista University Campus. COPE’s Simon Grindrod says that the new political party is definitely on track.
“There are 4000 representatives of COPE from around the country. There is a huge amount of energy and spirit. It is clear that COPE is on track to, if not win the election, then to make huge inroads into ANC strangle holds on our country,” said Grindrod.
He added that at the conference today, one could see from the people in Bloemfontein that change is in the air.
“COPE is going to be that change for people,” he said.
