THE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR PARTY (DLP) is preparing to rise from the ashes.

However, no new faces are among the at least four contenders who have put forward themselves for the presidency of the party which suffered a humiliating “red wash”  in the May 24 General Election when it failed to gain a single parliamentary seat.

The party is seeking to replace outgoing president and former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, who retired from elective politics after the historic loss.

Those angling for the post of president are former Minister of Environment Dr David Estwick; former Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy; former Minister of Sports, Youth and Culture Stephen Lashley and former candidate for Christ Church West Verla Depeiza.

Conference August 12

Reliable sources confirmed THE NATION’s information that in a little over two weeks, when the membership assembles at the annual general conference slated for August 12, the contenders for party posts will include all candidates rejected at the poll. (SDB Media)
