While the much anticipated PUP National Convention is set for Sunday January 31, the United Democratic Party also has a national convention looming in the near future as they are preparing for a convention in March. On Friday after the first sitting of the House of Representatives for 2016, we spoke to Prime Minister Dean Borrow who told the Media that there are no official candidates for any of the positions that are up for re-election.

“The dateline for the submissions and applications I believe it is next Friday I don’t know who is actually formally applied what is up for the election party leadership, deputy party leadership, chairman and vice-chairman am really not aware at this point who all may have applied of course there is still a week to go so even if I knew what names have been submitted so far that will be conclusive.”
We also spoke to Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Gaspar Vega who conformed to the media that he is not contemplating to run for the position of Party leader at the time.

“Everybody knows that this has to be Prime Minister’s last term because he can only be there for three years consecutively so until then we have enough time I guess so there is no use in us rushing and asking the Prime Minister to leave before the time so I don’t know what other people are contemplating so I am telling you that I am not contemplating to challenge the leader at this moment and if there is anyone contemplating my seat I really don’t know as yet, I think we have until next week Friday at five o’clock in the evening.”
The deadline to submit names for the UDP national convention is this Friday, January 29th and the official date for the convention is March 20th.
