Cope dealt blow in KZN

Durban - The only Cope member of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature officially joined the African National Congress on Wednesday.

Congress of the People provincial leader Lucky Gabela and other senior Cope members were handed ANC T-shirts by ANC provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala.

United Democratic Movement provincial executive committee member responsible for marketing and media Ian Radebe, along with two Agang SA members, were also welcomed into the ANC.

One of the Agang SA members, Bulelo Sigabi, was the party's deputy chairperson in the province.

Zikalala said the ANC's campaign in the province had been successful, but declined to predict what percentage of the vote he expected the ANC to capture.

He said the ANC would be happy if it won 100% of the vote in the province.

Previously he had claimed the party was aiming to secure 70% of the votes cast.

"A failure would be getting something less than what we have."

The ANC secured 62.9% of the provincial vote in the 2009 election, followed by the Inkatha Freedom Party with 22.4% and the Democratic Alliance with 9.15%.

Cope secured 44 890 votes or 1.2% of the votes cast in that election, which secured them the lone seat in the legislature occupied by Gabela.
