Alexander stepping down as PEP leader; frightened by response to “platform of change”


    Phillip Alexander is giving up the reins of leadership in the Progressive Empowerment Party following the 2020 General Election.

    Speaking tonight, he says he was hoping to begin the process of moving away from the current pattern of voting.

    However, Mr Alexander feels as though he has let down many persons who wanted change.

    Now, “in the best traditions of Westminster” he is now stepping aside and hopes to have party chairman Felicia Holder take over as interim leader until the PEP can host elections.

    Turning to the General Election itself, Mr Alexander says his platform of change did not resonate with the electorate – a situation he calls “frightening.”

    He warns that, come tomorrow, everything that does not work in T&T will continue not to work.
