Vasant Bharath, who is challenging Kamla Persad-Bissessar for the leadership of the UNC, has called for a meeting with her to discuss issues surrounding the conduct of the December 6th internal elections.
In a letter to the incumbent leader, Mr. Bharath says certain ground rules can be established for both the conduct of elections and the manner in which we intend to campaign.
He says issues such as the Election Committee, Election Rules, Membership Lists, and arrangements for polling day should ultimately be consensual and the product of mature discussions.
Mr. Bharath also wants to schedule a public debate on party issues among all candidates.
He says this will inform the members of our party of our respective views on rebuilding and retooling our party for success in future elections.
