UDP internal politics heat up: Welcome, the Coalition for Unity and Reform!

The Opposition seems that it is about to face yet another internal squabble. Our newsroom has been following the reports for weeks that a group of the party’s supporters are forming another group. Perhaps not unlike the Caucus for Change, this one is calling themselves the Coalition for Unity and Reform. We are told that this is a collective of supporters of the UDP, who are unhappy with the current leader, Moses “Shyne” Barrow. They accuse him of having a quote “dictatorial style of management” and one which quote “seeks to exclude valuable UDP organisers and supporters.” Infighting in political parties is not unusual, especially for the UDP, which has had a history of this. But today, we asked Party Chairman, Senator Michael Peyrefitte about it. 

And while Peyrefitte sees this as a necessary part of politics, he also told us today that he’s confident that the UDP will be fit and ready by the time the general elections come around. 

We also understand that the coalition is having its first official meeting sometime next week. As to who forms part of the group, a party insider told us that the remainder of the details will come after that meeting takes place. We will, of course, continue to follow the story.
