By Benjamin Flowers: United Democratic Party Leader Moses “Shyne” Barrow, in answering a question posted to the party earlier today, has explained why Patrick Faber’s application to remain the Standard Bearer for the Collet division has been rejected.
Barrow, in his response, first clarified to Taeger Panton that there was no waiver of the normal process for standard bearers to submit applications to the Nominations Committee.
“What is crucial therefore is the reason Hon. Faber’s application has been denied is his refusal to comply with the binding decision of the NPC[National Party Council] to immediately remove public attacks and criticisms of the Party and its members and refrain from such acts in adherence to the Party Constitution,” Barrow said. “The Nominations Committee sighted several instances of Hon. Faber’s defiance of the NPC in violation of the Party Constitution, one such offense as recent as last week September 18, 2022.”
He went on to say that Party Chairman Michael Peyrefitte had written to Faber several times regarding his continued violation of the party’s constitution, only to be met with contempt, and urged Panton to try and convince Faber to align his behavior with the party’s rules.
Barrow added that the party cannot operate with some members choosing to follow the rules and some doing the contrary.
“This matter is not at all complicated, once Hon. Faber cures his breaches to the Party Constitution and reaffirms his commitment to adhere to and respect the decision of the NPC 8/20/22, Hon. Faber can reapply to be the UDP Candidate for Collet before the September 30th, 2022 cut off and I believe the Nominations Committee may reconsider his application favorably,” Barrow concluded.
