While Prime Minister Dean Barrow was putting the final touches to his Cabinet, the People’s United Party met at Independence Hall. The opposition party has still not conceded the elections because of alleged Election Day irregularities for which it has filed three petitions in court. The P.U.P. is blaming its defeat on Mark Espat and Cordel Hyde, who held what were considered as safe seats in Albert and Lake I, but stepped down just prior to the elections, which ended in a seventeen-fourteen victory for the U.D.P. The party says they can no longer run or hold any seat on a P.U.P. ticket. But the opposition says that they are energized by the significant gains countrywide and it plans to reconnect with its base in the city where of the ten seats, it won only in the Freetown and Fort George divisions.
