UWP denies disunity

The General Secretary of the ruling United Workers Party (UWP), has rejected suggestions that it is only a matter of time before infighting breaks out in the new  government of Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet.

Detractors have pointed to previous internal differences in the UWP as evidence that the new administration will not hold together.

However UWP General Secretary, Oswald Augustin has said that if the party were not unified he would not be there.

“The party is more than unified,” Augustin declared.

He asserted that earlier this week the party had a meeting where the camaraderie was evident.

“The hugs, the everything – it is a unified party,” the UWP General Secretary said.

Shortly before the June 6, 20 16 general elections, former party leader, Stephenson King, who had distanced himself from the party after losing the leadership race to Allen Chastanet, returned to active campaigning with the UWP.

Chastanet has admitted that the two men had their differences, but have worked them out.
