- Cope 2019 Election Manifesto1.74 MB
Our vision for South Africa is for a democratic, inclusive and a prosperous country that promotes racial harmony, social cohesion, solidarity, unity in diversity, freedom and gender equality. COPE envisages a caring society where a shared national identity and pride are deeply rooted amongst South Africans.
Congress of the People’s vision is of a thriving democracy where everyone’s voice is heard loud and clear and where power is not hoarded by one political party for years.
Local government in South Africa has been serially in a state of crisis. The crisis continues year after year and things are getting progressively worse. Where it works, in most cases, it is always on the brink of failure. Corrupt and self-serving politicians, presiding over an incapable and incompetent management, quickly dissipate the budget and therefore no money is left to fund proper services. COPE wants to change all of this to save South Africa.
