United Democratic Party Initiates Candidate Selection Process for Municipal Elections
Municipal elections are less than one year away. It will be interesting to see the candidates that the United Democratic Party will be putting on their slates. According to Party Leader, Shyne Barrow, the selection process has begun.
Moses “Shyne” Barrow, Leader of the Opposition: “At the previous NPC on April 1st when I was endorsed to be leader going into the next general elections immediately we put out the notifications to invite applicants for municipal elections. That was April 3rd I believe it went out and we conclude the opening on Wednesday the 31st for for the last sixty days we have been accepting applications and then we will have a vetting process. We will have a vetting process which has been strengthened and will be much more tedious as we go into the municipal elections for that exact reason. We have an opportunity to win I believe seven municipalities at least five and that cannot happen without having extremely strong candidates that have much to offer the electorate as far as alternative. So we cannot afford to drop the ball with these opportunities to take back at least five to seven municipalities. So the vetting process will be tedious over the next thirty days once the invitation opening is closed and I assure you that as a party we will make sure that we have the strongest mayoral and councilor candidates in each of the municipalities even the ones that we will have a difficult time winning.”
Elections are slated for March 2024.
