Faber Not Quite Sold on Shyne’s Leadership into Next General Election

Moses "Shyne" Barrow

And, while Faber looks to the U.D.P.’s N.P.C. for a determination on his candidacy in Collet, he says he is not interested in contesting the party’s leadership position, at least not before the next general election. So, who does Faber favor to lead the U.D.P. into the next general election? He was asked for his thoughts on Moses “Shyne” Barrow being that person, as has been publicly announced. Well, Faber says he is not yet fully sold on the idea.

“Well, that’s a question that we will deal with on Saturday. I believe that is on our agenda for Saturday. But let me say this without saying too much and going too far that I believe in the democratic processes of the party. There are things in my view, which needs to happen before we can rally around a single leader. And, uh, those things will require some time. And the reason I’m saying that is that we are in a situation now where there is,  while you say it’s quiet on the, on the home front, at least from the media, the media’s perspective,  things are not all, things aren’t all settled. And so we need to be able to reach to that point and that will take some doing. And so, I certainly for on my own, I’m not comfortable saying this is a goal just yet. I think that there’s a lot that needs to be done. But insofar as the parties, a democracy and insofar as they may make a decision, whichever mechanism they use, that is right by the constitution of our party to say, all right, this is the situation, they will have no trouble from me. I have said, and I’m saying it publicly now. If there is a convention this year for leadership, as it is scheduled in our constitution, I will not be a candidate. So I am not going to stand in the way of anybody who aspires to be leader from getting there. But I do want to have a say and I do want to contribute to making sure that whoever leads this party understands that we need to be fighting fit, we need to be unified, and we need to practice the good, uh, practices of governing a party.”
