By Aaron Humes: United Democratic Party Chairman Michael Peyrefitte will this afternoon address with reporters news of the removal of former party leader Patrick Faber from the party central executive committee.
According to information obtained from party sources, Peyrefitte first addressed Faber on August 11, citing a vote by the Committee that he remove from his official Facebook page by a set deadline material that the party considered to be “attacking the Party and its members”, in violation of Articles 1, 5 and 8 of the Party Constitution and subsections thereto. Article 5 in particular states that once a decision has been taken by the party, members must defend and implement it even if they may not agree with it.
Faber responded hours later by email saying, “Ain’t gonna happen,” and dismissing the members of the Committee with an unkind word. Peyrefitte wrote back to announce the suspension.
Faber and parliamentarian Tracey Taegar-Panton among others complained of the party’s handling of selection of regional leaders without following due process and alleged general lack of consultation by party leader Moses “Shyne” Barrow. Breaking Belize News understands from party sources that, according to the UDP constitution, regional leaders are selected by delegates from each respective region with courtesy reports given to the Party Chairman. Any disputes are expected to be resolved at Central Executive and National Party Council meetings scheduled for August 17th and 20th respectively.
Per the letter signed by Peyrefitte to Faber, he is now in “bad standing” with the party and is unable to serve on the CEC until the requirements of the party’s constitution are complied with.
We’ll have more on this later.
