P.U.P. Executive Unanimously Endorses Francis Fonseca’s Leadership

Following a massive loss in municipal elections, the executive and key players in the P.U.P. have been circling the wagons around embattled leader Francis Fonseca. And today, in culmination of that defensive manoeuvre, the executive, standard bearers and the Parliamentary Caucus of the Party met to endorse Fonseca’s leadership, unanimously. The announcement was made after a session at Independence Hall which lasted more than four hours. The Party Leader did not speak, and the update was provided by Campaign Manager Godfrey Smith.

Godfrey Smith, Campaign Manager, P.U.P.

“In the first half of the meeting the Party Leader, Hon. Francis Fonseca, in essence laid on the table the question of his leadership and the question of a leadership convention, expressed his commitment and dedication to continuing forward to lead the P.U.P. to the next general election, but would do so only if all members of the National Executive, all Standard Bearers and the Parliamentary Caucus freely expressed their views on the position. The floor was then opened and every person in the room, essentially some thirty-eight persons, comprising those three bodies spoke and gave unanimous support for the leadership of Francis Fonseca moving forward, with some of the views being expressed that there perhaps should be an endorsement convention which would be held at some point in the future to be determined by the People’s United Party. So that was how the morning was spent. Everybody spoke, everybody expressed their view and in the end the Party Leader expressed his gratitude to those gathered and committed himself, and in fact everyone committed themselves to moving forward.”

    So basically, you have changed nothing. Great approach. Can really see that you are listening to the people. NOT!!!

    They listened to themselves and not the people who will put them there. So sad!!!!

    The reality is that Independence Hall is no longer relevant to national politics. Sane people don’t listen to delusional fools! What have you fools done to the party of George Price?
