Lake-I Area Rep Says P.U.P. Needs to Renew Itself

Cordel Hyde

Hyde says that successive failures have shown that it is time to stop paying lip service to change, and to make something happen. He wants to be an agent of that critical change.

“Really the party needs to renew itself. The party has failed over the last twelve years, all those elections to really convince people that we are new, that we are different, that we have reformed, that we have returned to our social justice roots. That has to be the primary preoccupation of the Party – that we focus on what really gives us the best chance at winning, what policies and programs will inspire the majority of the people. I think we have the talents inside, we have to renew ourselves. We have to bring it hard, because we are not going against a government that is comfortable with winning three elections. They want to win again. And so we have to bring everything that we possibly can to ensure that doesn’t happen. The truth of the matter is that for all the terms that the ruling Party has been government, the living standards of the people have not changed. The truth of the matter is that many people can’t pay their bills. Many people can’t send their children to school. Many people are living in sub-standard conditions. Many people’s kids are going to bed hungry at night. It’s really a difficult situation, and so we have to listen to the message from the people. We’ve lost many elections in the past twelve years. But we haven’t really examined enough, scrutinized enough, those messages from the people. I think we have to do that now and respond adequately to those.”
