Landy Habet says P.U.P. ready to go all the wall to recall Penner

Landy Habet

All eyes have been on Edmond Castro recently because of the compelling nature of the corruption allegations against him. But the man who started it all is former Minister of State Elvin Penner. He wasn’t at the House meeting today. It’s a case of out of sight, but not out of mind…and apparently not out of pocket since Penner doesn’t seem inclined to resign anytime soon and continues to enjoy salary and perks of his office. The P.U.P. started the recall process weeks ago and has reached the threshold. According the P.U.P. Cayo Northeast political officer they’re in the vetting stage and are intent on going all the way.

“We have collected our thirty percent since about a week ago. We are out there collecting some additional signatures so that we can reach above that thirty percent and of course we are doing the vetting of the signatures so that when we deliver those signatures to elections and boundaries, they will have almost no work to do because all the work would have been done.”

“And are you girls still fully committed to going all the way, you know this was the easy part of it; reaching the threshold for the referendum?

 

Landy Habet

“Yes certainly. We are going all the way; our people are committed. They want to see us now deliver those signatures so that we can trigger that referendum and people will be out there. There might have been some people who were a little reluctant because of the threats that were made previously, but they will be out there for an election.”
