Kareem Musa – Is He Also at the Gate for Leadership Race?

Kareem Musa

One name thrown into the leadership race is Caribbean Shores Area Representative Kareem Musa. He’s relatively new, with only one very significant, but recent victory under his belt. Like Espat, Musa isn’t saying that he will, just yet. But he isn’t saying that he won’t.


Kareem Musa, P.U.P. Area Representative, Caribbean Shores

“The only thing I am contemplating right now is serving my people from Caribbean Shores. Let’s be very clear about that. I was just hired one week ago to be the Area Representative. It’s a job I take very seriously and that is my sole objective at this time.”



“So this article, this blog which came out claiming that you have put your hat into the ring…it’s mischief?”


Kareem Musa

“Well the putting the hat into the ring business doesn’t start until December fifteenth, so there’s still time to consider that. I’ve been getting a lot of calls suggesting that I should but certainly it’s something that I have to consider. It’s not something that I am going to jump into at this time. I’m a newcomer to the race. There are a lot of other leaders in this party that I hold in high esteem, high regard, and I would love to have them lead. So we’ll just have to wait and see…wait and see how it pans out.”



“But from what you’re saying, you’re not rejecting the leadership thing out of hand?”


Kareem Musa

“I’m not rejecting…you never say never in politics. I’ve learned that you never say never. But at the same time my focus right now is on Caribbean Shores.”



“If you do not go for it, who would you like to see take over the reins of the party?”


Kareem Musa

“I could hold that one to my chest, and I will do so.”


Briceño, who is a former party leader, did not wish to make statements to the media today.

    As a loyal PUP support…I ask…I plead to the PUP Executive…no more MUSA’s….the MUSA’s had their turn…and they are partly to blame for the state the PUP is in…. We need new blood…new leadership…let the 1990′s PUP leaders rest…New candidates ..we need to redo our PUP if we want to be back in Power…PUP all the Way!!!

    My opinion is that Kareem should never run for leader that bitter taste of Musa regime has the PUP crumbling over and over. The Musa’s need to know this. If he runs PUP is damned. Because of the old Musa and Fonseca on the party this party will never be the same power house again. I ain’t politically affiliated to no red nor blue due to lack of trust in both parties but looking from the side view this is happening and will continue, if this party doesn’t desist of them.

    Cynical Said trying to install another Musa before Satan takes him. We are sick of the Palestinians in the PUP. I will pay for their tickets back to Palestine if I have to. Said brings us this Prince in waiting while he was sabotaging Francis Fonseca all the way, waiting for the Prince to return. I am sure you got calls, long before the elections: 1) from Daddy 2) brother Billy 3) bastard son Henry Charles. Very transparent move Said. Slimy, not slick. ##@$# you Musas. Take Lisa Shoman with you too.

    Just sit down kareem. PUP needs to go on a whole different thinking and direction. You can’t even say who you prefer for leader? Whats so wrong with that? Thats the same kind of cloak and dagger thinkings that have you guys losing over and over. But its so bred deep inside you, that you don’t even realize you’re doing the same thing that is damning your party.

    A new name needs to be at the helm. His name is Cordel hyde. But I fear you fools would do your damnedest to screw him over.
