Cry of foul tactics
With the race for the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) presidency entering its final lap, candidate Reverend Guy Hewitt is crying foul over what he says is the behaviour meted out to him and his supporters.
He told a meeting of the party’s Christ Church South branch at the Deighton Griffith Secondary School, and those watching via Facebook that not only were they attacked, but information he requested relating to the election at the annual conference this weekend was not forthcoming and neither was the code of conduct he suggested.
Hewitt, who is going up against incumbent Verla de Peiza, who has been leading the 66-year-old party since its massive defeat in the 2018 General Election, said that from the launch of his campaign, he publicly commended her for doing so.
However, he added, “at this juncture there is a need for a different quality of leadership that is able to project a vision and policies of the wider electorate, and mobilise the resources needed to win an election and ultimately for Government”. (GBM)
