With the People’s United Party (PUP) leadership convention around the corner, the three candidates vying for the party’s top spot: Cordel Hyde, Johnny Briceno, and Francis Fonseca, have agreed to take part in a public debate on January 28th.
Organizer of the event, Glenn Tillett, told The Reporter the debate is an effort to reach out to the PUP’s electorate. The candidates are very enthusiastic about discussing the issues currently affecting their electorates and the country.
Topics including the International Court of Justice (ICJ) referendum, poverty alleviation, crime and the economy are issues that are going to be discussed next Thursday night.
Tillet said the candidates are excited to participate, answer questions and hear feedback from the supporters of the party.
The public is invited to attend the debate and to submit questions about concerns they have and want the candidates to answer. Questions and concerns can be submitted to Tillett at [email protected], or to Glenn Tillett on his Facebook page.
The debate will be held next Thursday the 28th at the Caracol Room of the Radisson Fort George hotel. It starts at 7:30 p.m.
