U.D.P. Party Chairman says organ is ready
Wednesday’s dual elections will be the culmination of weeks and in some cases months of vigorous door to door campaigning. While electioneering will not be allowed on the day the U.D.P. and the P.U.P. are tonight busy making last-minute preparations in order to mobilize their supporters to come out to vote. It is expected that the party machineries will be kicking into overdrive as the deadline for voting winds down on Wednesday evening. News Five caught up with U.D.P. Party Chairman Patrick Faber earlier today and he says that after weeks of diligent preparation their state of readiness couldn’t be better.
Patrick Faber, Party Chairman, U.D.P.
“We’ve been saying for some time that the party is ready and that status has not changed. We have become, of course, more battle ready leading up to this point in time and tomorrow is just a matter of execution. I’m sure that everybody would have seen in their area of the country the huge crowds that the United Democratic Party has been able to garner at all of its rallies and that for us is a signal that the party is ready. Of course we have been, over the last couple of weeks, checking the machinery, making sure that everybody has their pledge list, making sure that everybody has an operation to get out the voters, making sure they have workers in place. The party has been doing that and so we are confident that tomorrow if it is that machinery is going to win the day the United Democratic Party will come out successful and on top.”
“The age old adage goes “elections are won on the day.” Pundits are predicting that the People’s United Party is offering more of a formidable challenge this time around than in the previous 2008 elections based on polling alone. What’s your opinion on the polls that have been conducted recently?”
“I don’t believe them at all. Most of these polls are done by people, of course, who have an axe to grind. Certainly Mr. Strimpel was hired by Lord Ashcroft. Certainly people like Yasmin Andrews and [Karim] Berges they have gripes against the United Democratic Party. I make no apologies in saying that.”
