UPP rejects Lovell’s resignation

Lovell made a "grand entrance" as his party launched its campaign

It is not certain what will happen now that the United Progressive Party has rejected the resignation of its political leader Harold Lovell.

Lovell resigned at the General Council meeting earlier this evening but according to reports, the majority of those in attendance rejected his resignation.

He is facing a challenge from Richard Lewis who along with Lovell was also defeated in the March 21 general election.

What the party decides to do will become clearer at its National Convention to be held on November 17 and 18, 2018.

Lovell led the UPP to a crushing defeat at the recent poll, with his party narrowly holding on to one seat.

Opposition leader Jamal Pringle was the only UPP candidate to win making him the obvious choice of opposition leader.

  1. You guys cant be serious. Does the UPP really enjoying being in opposion that much. Dont they realized as long as Lovell is the leader they aint winning another election.

  2. Why did Lovell resign? The party needs new leadership. Lovell has committed some seemingly “unpardonable sins” that the people have NOT forgotten.

  3. Is the UPP really serious as a Party? I don’t think they are.If they were,they definitely would not try to prevent Lovell’s resignation.. This is a done Party,at least for the near future..
