B.P.P. to Put Forward Fewer Candidates for General Elections

Patrick Rogers

To contest the general elections, Rogers says they have a strategy in place to increase their chances of winning. He says that they have fewer candidates this time around – something they are hoping to champion in what is called a ‘de-centralized movement’ in the country.

 

Patrick Rogers, Leader, B.P.P.

“This time around we have been very strategic in making a decision to give the green light to returning candidates who have been vetted. We have also said we wouldn’t turn away a good prospect that approaches us, but because we know that the corrupt business people will not be giving us their money and we may not raise over a hundred thousand dollars again, we made a conscious decision since there is another alternative party out there to just focus on fewer candidates to enhance our chance at delivering a win. So, if you ask if we are ready – yes, we are ready. We went ahead and developed our direction so that they can know what they are allowed to speak about as a B.P.P. candidate while in turn they develop their own local manifesto. Because the B.P.P. is about building a de-centralized movement in this country and that is why we are short in the north and Cayo.  This election is a strategic move to go with fewer candidates, figuring that if we have wah eighty-five thousand dollars budget with ten candidates – boom – we could do something. So, we nuh even reach twelve thousand yet with this money that brother Yhony kicked in for the press conference and unu please check out our big sign weh we wah complete at the entrance of the city. But we are here and we are here to stay. We nuh have nowhere to go. Look to twenty-twenty-five to maybe see a full slate if we are maybe to organize successfully before that election.”
