Alexander seeking to become a UNC member

Phillip Edward Alexander, the man who formed the Progressive Empowerment Party (PEP) then stepped down as its political leader following the last general election, is now stating that he will be giving his full support to the United National Congress (UNC).

Alexander, in an interview with the Express, said he intends to formally apply and become a UNC party member, “because a unity is the only way to get rid of the People’s National Movement (PNM) Government.”

He told the media house that “When we add the numbers in the last election, if all of us had stood together the PNM would not be the Government, we have to decide now what do we want, a functional country or hand it over to the puppeteers of the PNM.”
