The Congress of the People is committed to ensuring that the public is served by a party operating on the basis of integrity, and with high moral and ethical standards.
The name COPE derives from the historic meeting held in Kliptown on 26 June 1955, where the Freedom Charter was adopted.
The Congress of the People was born out of the need for proper, non-racial, non-sexist and democratic governance.
COPE leader Mosiuoa Lekota, speaking out against land expropriation without compensation, tearfully defended the constitutional principles negotiated at the Convention for a Democratic South Africa (Codesa). He believes all South Africans are entitled to the non-racial, non-sexist democracy that Struggle heroes fought for.
