Mike Peyrefitte: “Disappointments are to be Expected”

Michael Peyrefitte

In the wake of the convention, supporters of both John Saldivar and Wilfred Elrington are disappointed with the outcome, however, there are no confirmations on any new resignation in the days ahead, and as we said earlier, Saldivar and Faber appear to be mending fences.  According to Chairman Peyrefitte, a disappointment is par for the course in any political race.

 

Michael Peyrefitte, Chairman, United Democratic Party

“We had a race between John, Patrick and Sedi.  If they supported any of the two that were not victorious then naturally they would be disappointed.  The question is, are they so disappointed that they’re not U.D.P. anymore?  They’ve not told me that.  Are they so disappointed that they’re not running for the U.D.P. again?  They haven’t told me that.  And so, you have to expect that in a competition people will be disappointed but that doesn’t mean anything, it’s a part of the process.  We are united but we are a democratic party and in a democratic party you have elections, you have conventions and may the best person win at all times and naturally those who want to put forward their candidate, if they are not successful dehn wahn ketch lee feelings.  That’s natural in any competition, but then that doesn’t mean that you are not still a part of the team and it is certainly my job and the new party leader elect’s job to then go and speak to our colleagues and to make sure that whatever wounds are there are just battle wounds that can easily heal and for us to remember that we are on the same team.  So it’s not an issue for us at all.”
