DNA accepts resignation but reject unfounded allegations of former executive members

Parker

The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) wishes to advise that Bruce Goodwin and Malaka Parker, the DNA’s 1st Vice President and Chairman respectively, have informed our General Secretary in a letter dated October 24th, 2022 jointly signed by them of their resignation from the Party and all positions held by them including Parker’s candidacy.

The Party accepts the resignation of our former colleagues.

However, we categorically reject their unfounded allegations regarding accountability and transparency in their letter as there is absolutely no instance or evidence to support what is clearly a red herring.

On February 22, 2022, the DNA issued a press release dispelling any notion for a merger with the UPP following statements that day by both Goodwin and Parker on Observer Radio Dave Lester Payne’s show for a “coming together” of both parties (DNA and UPP).

Their announcement was made despite their continued failed efforts to persuade the DNA leadership that this was a path that the Party should pursue.

Their position for a “coming together” of the DNA and the UPP was rejected by an overwhelming majority of the Party’s Management Committee at a meeting the following day. Shortly thereafter, Parker advised of her intention to take a “sabbatical”.

Since then, both have effectively abdicated their roles, duties and responsibilities within the Party and have participated in very few activities.

In the penultimate paragraph of their letter, citing “irreconcilable differences”, both state their intention to “apply whatever modest political skills we may possess to endeavours that may contribute positively and meaningfully to relieving our long-suffering country from the unbearable burden of predatory, fraudulent, incompetent and destructive political leadership.”

It is evident that both Bruce Goodwin and Malaka Parker intend to take their skills to the UPP given their previous failed efforts to persuade the DNA not participate in the upcoming general elections.

The DNA’s President, Joanne Massiah, said “the Party is in a good place and we remain resolute in our commitment to champion the principles of Transformational Leadership, Good Governance, Accountability and Transparency in public life and to deliver our motto, Prosperity For All.”

    • Shame & disgrace if Malayka goes back to UPP. Wasn’t this the party that kicked her out? Come on Malayka you are stronger than that. Show us that you can form your own party. Remember your very own constituency member booted u out of UPP & no one stood up for you

      • @ Bluddy Joke

        You mean like how Adolphus Freeland beg back VC Bird or Muff beg back to join the ABLP.

        It seems like you guys are upset with the fact that she is back where she belongs? Do I detect a sense of fear?
        Just call de dam election you scare crow so we can GET RID A DEM.

  1. JOANNE MASSIAH IS THE COMMON DENOMINATOR IN PARTY SPLITS.
    LIKE SHE CAN’T GET ON WITH PEOPLE.

    SHE CAUSED TROUBLE IN THE UPP AND SHE CAUSE TROUBLE IN THE DNA, HER OWN PARTY.
    IF SHE CAN’T EVEN RUN HER OWN PARTY, HOW SHE COULD EVER EXPEXT TO RUN A GOVERNMENT

  2. There is a saying “When you dig a hole for someone to fall into… dig two, one for them and one for you.” DNA, THIS is what you should have been studying, the unrest in your party! SMH.

    Everyone sees through you.
    Your only objective is to DENY UPP the opportunity of winning the next general election in Antigua.
    You and your cohorts would rather see Gaston Brown and the ABLP back in power than the UPP, so much so that you would rather people continue to suffer from hunger, starvation, the unhealthy state of the environment and country, the filth of the nation with uncollected garbage, lack of resources at the hospital, a government unable to pay its suppliers, stagnation in the economy, public workers striking left right and centre, so many workers on the breadline, including LIAT, Jolly Beach, Solid Waste, the enrichment schemes of the Labour party, lack of Water, high cost of living, exhorbitant gas prices, WHAT MORE DOES THE DNA WANT happeneing to this country for them to dispose of Gaston? NO, BUT they want him returned to power, all because of selfishness on the part of all the BITTER PEOPLE IN THE PARTY, yourself including: Imhoff, Anthony Stuart, Young.
    You should rebrand your party DNA: D=the, N=ational, A=alliance of BITTER people, all because they lost in a primary (including yourself). How can anyone take you guys seriously?
    This is not about country but about your own personal interest. If it wasn’t you would’t jump ship just because you lost a primary.
    All the DNA does is malign the loyal opposition. A public meeting held by your party just attacked, attacked and attacked the UPP. Never once during that meeting did any of your candidates criticised the ABLP, and you expect people to consider and vote for you?
    YOU THINK ANTIGUANS STUPID? IF SO, you and your party are patronising.

    • ABLP…is the only true political party in this country….
      No merger ..no mash up…
      PLM..GONE..UNDP GONE…ACLM GONE ..MERGE ALL THREE = UPP.
      After begging the people years after years..they gave you a chance in 2004 because you promised you go jailed them, you fabricate lies of rape and sex with a minor against former prime Minister claiming you have evidence and all you bring is hardship and taxes.
      2009 you get away by the skin of your teeth and 2014 the people get fed up of you…you bearly won 2 seats and further down hill from there. Now only one seat in parliament and by the lowest of all your candidates.
      Now you coming begging again…
      GRAYS GREEN COMMUNITIES WOULD BE CRAZY TO ELECT ONE YOUR CANDIDATES AGAIN AFTER THE ABUSE AND NEGLECT OF ONE OF THEIR OWN AND FORMER PRIME MINISTER

    • @ Smh

      I TOTALLY AGREE.

      You are wasting your words and time, lol

      U TINK ANTEEGA PEOOPLE STUPID TO WASTE THEIR VOTE?
      All you guys wishing for is for the DNA to take away votes from the UPP…..NEVER GONNA HAPPEN, LOL.
      Shows how scared you are.
      GET RID A DEM

  5. She never say why… we need hear from her own lips 💋 why …after we pledged our support..after we ask her to break the cycle of abuse we suffered for decades from both parties…she now abandoned us. Thank you Malaka.
    The people of Grays Green that she pleged her love to you. You saw our neglect..you feel our pain that why you left the UPP in the first place and chose something new because you knew you could make a difference..we know you could make a difference because we have seen the rest..we were failed by the rest…Anthony Stuart was our first choice but you were our hope…
    Now you we are so disappointed by your decision..to be woe back by LOVELL AND THE UPP….Bruce was always an UPP Operative WHO made a mock of his ambassadorship in Cuba..and you made the long locks fooled you…
    We will always you..daughter of Grays Green. Best of luck.

      I would humbly request that you go back to school to learn English, Comprehension and Phonics.🫣

  6. Mami_Wata and Papa_Elegba rattling bones have said, to #Jumbee_Picknee, since, Politics in the Nation has become a game similar to #Football/Soccer, and players get traded and replaced during the season(Campaigning/Silly_Season), leading up to the Championship(Win at the poles),
    Captain Harold “Stoic” Lovell,Head-coach Coach D. Giselle, Assistant Coach Tabor, MUST replace SEAN BIRD with MALEKA PARKER in City East.
