Espat and Hyde now senior Deputy Leaders of P.U.P.

Mark Espat

As we reported on Tuesday, the national executive of the People’s United Party met today at Independence Hall. Except or a few sparks that flew across the room, the executive approved the appointment of area representatives Mark Espat and Cordel Hyde as senior deputy leaders of the opposition party. Both were not present for the meeting but their appointment will now proceed before the national party council which will be meeting in the next few days.

Cordel Hyde

Francis Fonseca of the Freetown division was also elevated to senior deputy party leader; the three being senior parliamentarians. Florencio Marin has been appointed as parliamentary liaison. Mike Espat and Carolyn Trench Sandiford will continue to serve as deputy party leaders. So it means that the party did accept the resignation of former deputy Dan Silva.

Jaime Briceno

The other big item on the agenda was the appointment of Jaime Briceno, businessman and brother of the party leader as a co-chair to Senator Eamon Courtenay as national campaign manager. Attorney at law, Rachel Montejo, has also taken up the post of Secretary General to oversee the functionality of the secretariat. As far as we are told, the changes are to bolster the campaign leading up to the municipal and general elections in 2012 and 2013, which the opposition intends to vigorously mount. The U.D.P. controls all municipal bodies and the super majority of the thirty-one seats in the House.
