Two candidates opt of DLP presidential race

Two candidates opt of DLP presidential race

Two of the four people nominated to contest the presidency of the Democratic Labour Party have dropped out the race.

The Democratic Labour Party’s 3rd Vice President Ryan Walters as well has Attorney-at-Law Francis De Peiza  have both  declined their nominations for the presidency of the party.

There were among  four people  nominated to take over the leadership of the DLP.

But in a letter emailed to the party’s executive today, which is now making the rounds on social media, Mr. Walters, a business executive, said while he was very keen to participate in the election process as a candidate for the presidency, recent developments professionally now make it extremely challenging for him to do so .
He extended what he called a heartfelt thank you to members of the party and branches that supported his nomination.
However, he said he had no choice but to decline the nomination simply because, if successful, time would not permit him to give the office of the Presidency the attention it needs as they are in the process of rebuilding and restoring confidence.
But he promised to continue to support the leadership and represent the party when called upon to do so.

Meantime, sources close to the party tell Starcom Network News Francis De Peiza, brother of former DLP President Verla De Peiza also declined his nomination.

The two other names put forward  to contest the leadership were reportedly Dr. Ronnie Yearwood and Dr. David Estwick
