North Trelawny Member of Parliament, Victor Wright, has officially thrown his support behind Doctor Peter Phillips in the race for leader of the People’s National Party.
Wright says he believes the One PNP camp led by Phillips is the best choice for leading the country. However, he did not intend to try and influence the region 1 delegates in their choice between Phillips and Rise United’s Peter Bunting, the challenger to Phillips’ leadership of the party.
North Trelawny Member of Parliament (MP) Victor Wright says while will be throwing his support behind incumbent Dr Peter Phillips in the upcoming People’s National Party’s (PNP) leadership race, he will not be dictating to the delegates of Region One – who re-elected him unopposed on Sunday – who they should support.
The first-time MP told The Gleaner on Sunday that he did some amount of soul-searching before deciding to support Phillips instead of the challenger, Peter Bunting.
“It is a decision that I did not make flippantly. I studied the history of the party, and in looking forward, in regards to the future of the party. I have concluded that Comrade Peter Phillips is the best person to lead the PNP,” said Wright.
“It is my opinion that he has the best chance of leading us into the general election and giving us victory over this uncaring Government.
