‘Rigorous’ process for DLP candidates

Speaking at the party’s George Street, St Michael headquarters yesterday, general secretary George Pilgrim said the DLP candidates were usually selected by its executive and after a “rigorous” process.

So we monitor those persons expressing an interest in running in constituencies on a very, very consistent basis, and what we do in terms of information we gather is fed right back to the party’s executive. So the party leader chairs our meetings and he is quite aware of the actions, the activities of all of our candidates. (YB)
