President of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP), Verla De Peiza, says she remains unfazed by Reverend Guy Hewitt’s challenge for leadership of the party.

“Reverend Hewitt is entitled to run. I am not stumped; I am not stymied. It doesn’t cause me to stumble; as you can see, we get on with what it is we have to do on behalf of our party members and the people of Barbados.

“Come annual conference (which will run from August 18 to 22), that will be resolved and the business of the party will continue,” she said.

De Peiza was speaking yesterday following the launch of the DLP’s new website at the party’s headquarters in George Street, St Michael.

Last month, Hewitt, who had initially said he was not interested in the electoral side of politics, announced he was running against De Peiza. (SB)
