The Congress of the People in
a statement applauds Winnie Madikizela-Mandela for requesting an amendment to
the electoral system we are using at the national and provincial level.
In the statement it said she
recognises clearly, after having participated in the struggle, that lack of
accountability is the bane of society.
Now that comrade Winnie
Madikizela-Mandela has made her call for electoral reform public, COPE urges
South Africans to rally behind her.
COPE’s spokesperson Dennis
Bloem said COPE really agrees with what she is saying because if we are not
having accountability from the public representatives, that is the councillor
and members of parliament, then our service delivery would never happen.
“It was a very brave step of
Winnie Madikizela-Mandela to tell the ANC that this current system does not
work.” Bloem added.
