The Congress of the People’s national spokesperson, Johann Abrie, has defected to the Democratic Alliance.

The DA today welcomed Abrie to the party.

“The DA continues to build a truly diverse political alternative for all South Africans who are committed to the Constitution and working for opportunities for all,” national spokesperson Marius Redelinghuys said.

“Abrie’s decision to join the DA is further evidence of this.”

He said Abrie officially resigned from Cope on Monday. He had been a party member since its inception in 2008.

While a member of Cope, Abrie served as a member of the Limpopo legislature and a councillor in the Modimolle municipality.
