President of the Democratic Labour Party, Verla De Peiza says she is hearing the noise from her latest challenger, this time coming from within the bowels of the party.

But the attorney-at-law yesterday said she remains committed to serving the DLP, even as Reverend Guy Hewitt continues to speak publicly on his reasons for putting his hat in the ring, and why he cannot stand beside her in leading the party into the next general election.

“This is internal party politics. Like any family we have our differences and we move on,” she told the Sunday Sun yesterday after a voice note with Hewitt was circulated on social media explaining why he could not support De Peiza.

She added: “In the spirit of good democracy, Guy is allowed to continually change his position. And I remain committed to serving the party as leader.” (BA)
