Former United Workers Party, UWP, political leader, Stephenson King, declaring that he is foremost and with much conviction, a member of the party and committed to it, has nevertheless made it clear that all politicians will have options.
He listed among those options bowing out, considering other organizations and standing alone.
However, King, who appears to be at odds with the current leadership of the party he once led, made it clear that he was not yet at the stage of considering options.
“ I am very hopeful that in the short period that is ahead of us that the party and myself and others who have problems in the party, can find a vehicle to resolve those issues and prepare ourselves for the next general elections,” the Castries North MP and former Prime Minister told the Times.
Asked that would happen if those efforts fail, King’s response was:
“Failure to resolve the issues then we begin to actively consider the options. But I really do not want to preempt what is likely to happen. I really would hope that the first option, which is the option of staying within the organization, would be the only option available to us.”
