Delroy complains

Candidate for the Stann Creek West constituency for the UDP, Delroy Cuthkelvin, has complained to UDP Secretary General Pearl Stuart that apparently, there is an intention to “prejudice the outcome of the [party] convention in favor of one candidate…”

According to Cuthkelvin’s campaign committee, “at a meeting in Silk Grass on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, attended by our candidate and other representatives of our campaign committee, a maximum of just over 200 names were presented, reviewed and agreed on.

“Yet the Secretariat has prepared a list of almost 900 names, which we understand was compiled in conjunction with Melvin Hulse, one of the other contestants in the convention.

“We have still not seen the entire list … we were told by the Chairman that the full list would not be presented to us until Sunday morning, an hour before the convention. This we find unacceptable.”

The letter, dated today, concludes with “We hereby demand an urgent reconvening of the parties involved by the end of today [Thursday] to resolve this matter. Failing this, we will take necessary action to defend the interest of our candidate and campaign committee.”
