Cope to settle out of court

2010-05-27 14:59
Cape Town – A challenge to the validity of Cope's recent Western Cape congress may be settled out of court, officials at the Western Cape High Court said on Thursday.

Judge Siraj Desai was scheduled to hear an urgent application on Thursday morning by members of Cope's Mosiuoa Lekota faction.

However court officials said the parties had notified the judge that they were talking about a settlement.

The congress on Sunday backed Cope's deputy president, Mbhazima Shilowa, to lead the party.

The leadership is to be decided at a national congress, scheduled to start at the weekend.

Cope leaders from both factions agreed on Wednesday to include some branches which had been excluded from the national congress.

Lekota, who is Cope's current president, had earlier called for the meeting to be postponed, saying many branches were excluded from the delegate list and some had been added wrongfully.
