Cope still to decide on coalitions

The Congress of the People (Cope) has not yet decided whether it will enter into coalition agreements with other parties, a spokesperson for the Mosiuoa Lekota faction said today.

Phillip Dexter said the party’s working committee would meet today and its congress national committee tomorrow.

“At these meetings we will discuss the elections and the results and whether we want coalitions,” he said.

Dexter said he could not comment on a possible national coalition agreement with the DA until the meetings were over.

Today, Business Day reported the chairperson of the DA’s federal executive, James Selfe, saying that the DA and Cope were discussing a national deal that would cover municipalities where coalitions were possible.

Dexter also declined to comment on whether Cope would work with the ANC.

“I cannot make any comment on those things until the meetings are over. We will release a statement once the meetings are over,” he said.
