The Congress Of the People has
urged South Africans to act strategically when it comes to voting.
COPE is convinced that voters
must use their votes in a predetermined and strategic manner for optimal
COPE spokesperson, Dennis Bloem
said COPE is urging voters to start gathering in discussion groups right away
on how to get value for their votes.
Bloem explained that “ruling
parties with overwhelming majorities quickly forget about voters. That is why
we are urging voters to show that sovereignty belongs to the people and that it
is they who hold public representatives to account.”
“It is our common interest to
teach fellow South Africans about strategic voting so that they can retain the
upper hand and keep public representatives properly in check, We need to say to
all of them in government that enough is enough.” Bloem concluded.
