COPE elective conference changed to strengthen unity

The Congress of the People announced today it decided to convert its elective conference into a policy conference to avert a split in the party.

The party says tensions between current President Mosiuoa Lekota and and his deputy Mbhazima Shilowa were threatening the unity of the party.

Cope’s congress national committee decided this afternoon to abandon plans to elect a leader this weekend.

Party spokesperson Phillip Dexter says they will hold an elective conference once their branches are all in order.

Lekota supporters in the Western Cape applied for an interdict against Cope’s Western Cape congress last week, which was postponed.
