The Opposition United Workers Party has set December 12 for its delegate’s conference to elect a leader and other officers.
At a meeting of the UWP Council on Sunday, it was decided that delegates would assemble at four different areas for the conference, to adhere to COVID-19 health protocols.
The party also discussed statements alleged to have been made by former deputy leader Joshua Francis, which went viral.
The statements, which were made to some friends of Mr. Francis, were recorded without his knowledge, where he accused the UWP and its leadership for the embarrassment he endured a few years ago which included his arrest by police.
In the statement, Francis described the Prime Minister as a better leader than Lennox Linton.
The UWP Council meeting discussed the matter, and DBS News understands that some sort of action against Mr. Francis may be coming.
Currently, Mr. Francis does not hold an executive position within the UWP, but contested the 2019 General Election on a UWP ticket, and lost the Roseau South seat.
Mr. Francis was not at Sunday’s meeting.
DBS News will follow that development and bring you the latest, as it unfolds.
