Thursday, July 23, 2015. BMG: According to 7 News, several of the candidates of the People’s United Party (PUP) who absented themselves from a meeting of the party’s National Executive held a meeting of their own on Wednesday.
Former leader John Briceno, who was away dealing with a family illness, on his return met with Cordel Hyde, Dan Silva and others to discuss the general discontent in the party ranks.
Hyde, Silva, Jose Mai, and Major Lloyd Jones are among those who did not attend the larger meeting, and while some presented legitimate excuses, rumors persist of a boycott by frustrated standard bearers with the leadership of the party, who wished to send a message to the leadership that there is widespread discontent.
But Party Leader Francis Fonseca told the press that there was no boycott, just isolated and unremarkable absences.
