This is despite an admission by general secretary Papi Kganare with Eyewitness News that some of the party's members are unhappy with Lekota over his association with AfriForum.

Cope released a statement that according to the party's constitution, any member can propose a motion of no-confidence against any leader by submitting it to the secretary general.

As we release this statement, there is no motion of no-confidence which has been submitted to me.

Papi Kganare, General secretary - Cope

The issues of AfriForum was dealt with early last year and Cope’s position is that we are opposed to amendment of Section 25 of the South African Constitution and will work together with any organization or political party sharing the same view on this subject including Afri-Forum; DA and farmers organization. There is no special relationship between Afriforum and Cope.
