PdP also losing members
It appears it is not only the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) that is bleeding key membership of late, as the Joseph Atherley-led People’s Party for Democracy and Development (PdP) lost one of its high-ranking members with three more expected to go.
After his defection was made public yesterday by DLP president Verla De Peiza, Paul Gibson, who served two years as the spokesperson on health for the PdP, confirmed that he had joined the “party of Errol Barrow”.
The Weekend Nation confirmed that Dave Walrond, the man who contested the St George North by-election on the PdP ticket, is also making similar moves, so too is the party’s spokesperson on culture, Allan Springer. A source has also revealed that a fourth member of the party is contemplating leaving elective politics altogether, however efforts to reach that individual were unsuccessful.
