With the People’s United Party preparing for the upcoming elections they believe will be called shortly and with the recent firing of the National Campaign Manager, Godfrey Smith, Party Leader Fonseca was asked if to date he has found a replacement for Smith.
“We did talk about the whole structure of the campaign and what we have looked at is the setting up a structure with regional coordinators and we will determine as we move forward if we need to have in place specific persons in terms of a national campaign manager. We’ve put together a team of coordinators that we believe will be most effective at this time and so we spent some time discussing that as well.”
“Notably, Godfrey Smith is not here, who you said became your personal advisor after he was removed from the post of NCM. Did he give an excuse, did he give a reason for not attending this meeting?”
“He is not a part of the National Executive.”
“But he is your personal advisor….”
“I have many personal advisors. They don’t attend national executive meetings.”
