Musa Says P.U.P. Will Unite for General Elections

Said Musa

News Five has been able to confirm that ten Standard Bearers that comprise the original G-twelve met with P.U.P. leader Francis Fonseca on Monday. Details are sketchy, but we understand that there was agreement on the formation of a committee to implement recommendations made, and also a mutual agreement that all parties will work together heading into general elections, likely later this year. As to the matter of the request for a National Convention – well that will happen, but without a challenge of leadership. Former Prime Minister Said Musa agrees that it is a bad time for the Party, but he believes they can all pull it together whenever elections are called.

 

Said Musa, Former Prime Minister

“They wrote a letter to the Party Leader – twelve of the Standard Bearers – wrote a letter to the Party Leader asking for three things – a National Convention, a restructuring of the National Executive of the Party, or a discussion with a view to restructure. And the third one was the need for more consultation, or words to that effect.”

“With the people or among themselves?”

 

Said Musa

“I take it with the people. Or maybe both, maybe with themselves. Maybe some of them feel left out and want to be more involved. But I don’t sense, I have to say, that any one of the twelve wants to defect or wants to do ill to the Party. I think if the bell rings tomorrow, they’ll be ready to fight in their constituency.”

 

Dickie Bradley

“But you had gone through experiences with those who…but let me say this. It doesn’t – let me choose my words. I wanted to say a Party like that weh deh quarrel like that, weh no learn nothing from their grandparents. You never wash your dirty linen in public. If that is what you are doing imagine when you get into government imagine what will happen. Every minute we would have a situation like what happened in your time. Every minute somebody would get vex and want to do this and do that. That does not bode well. Well it’s not my understanding but I am not in politics. But the signal is just awful. Big men sit down and work out things. But let me also say this. When fish come from river bottom and tell you that the alligator doesn’t want to consult and doesn’t want to hold National Convention something is also wrong.”

 

Said Musa

“So clearly there is some miscommunication going on here, right. But I don’t put it any higher than that. I don’t want to believe that these men, any of them, are out to sabotage the People’s United Party.”
