Lips sealed on Abed switch
The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) has axed Taan Abed as its representative for the Christ Church West Constituency in the next general elections.
Instead, it is going with attorney-at-law Verla DePeiza who has been given the nod to contest in the riding in the next general election constitutionally due by the end of the first quarter of 2013.
The decision taken at the party’s General Council meeting Wednesday night has triggered an uneasy mood among supporters of the 54-year-old businessman who scored a runaway 86-5 victory over DePeiza at the constituency’s nomination process a few weeks ago.
The WEEKEND NATION was unable to reach DePeiza yesterday for a comment on the matter.
