At the Party's Conference of Delegates meeting that was held yesterday at Mon Repos, though a nomination was not going to come from the Choiseul Branch, I was expecting a well-known Choiseulian within the political circles to be nominated for the post of Deputy Chairman. It was hoped that the nomination might have come from a Castries based branch....I stand corrected That did not happen. Whether this individual had a change of heart or chickened out, is for another show.
Did it surprise you that Choiseul executive, through Peter 'Reds" Philip,showed their displeasure with Allen's leadership by nominating Claudius Preville to via for the post of Political Leader come November 2014, at the Party's Annual Convention. It must be noted here, that Claudius himself must be disappointed with Allen's style
|Dr Claudius Preville|
Talking about dead horses and commitment; those from outside Choiseul that thought they were running things got the shock of their lives.
The UWP hierarchy would have liked to go into this upcoming convention with Chastanet running unopposed. This is a blow to them. It clearly shows that there is discontent with Chastanet as political leader.ely
With the nomination coming from Choiseul one can safely assume that all will be done in the power of the executive, not to forget Rufus, to sway all delegates in the constituency to vote for Dr Preville. The campaign war has just begun. Can Dr Preville match up to Chastanet's strategies? King, Rufus and Frederick could not, leading to the last Convention, Who says Dr Preville can?
