Faber Can Only Be Removed by a Two-thirds Majority

Patrick Faber

On the matter of a course of action to be taken by the party executive, we asked the chairman of the U.D.P if the decision making process would involve delegates and others within the party’s hierarchy. Here’s how he responded.

 

Isani Cayetano

“Is it only the decision of the convention to have him removed or would the wider, how would I say, if there are delegates or there are other people within the party who wield a certain power would be a part of this decision making?”

 

Michael Peyrefitte

Michael Peyrefitte, Chairman, United Democratic Party

“The people who are elected to the post within the leadership of the party, leader, first deputy, second deputy, vice chairman, we either resign or a majority of the delegates would have to trigger a special convention to have us removed.  So a number of voices can’t get together to make him move, it has to be an official trigger to have any of us removed from our elected posts, unless we resign first. So it’s either we resign or we are removed by the two-thirds majority of the delegates in question.”
