The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC) Mohamed Bangura has said that his party is not in disarray.
He was reacting to some stories in the local media that the PMDC is in disarray and that some of their members wants to tamper with their Party constitution in favour of Charles Margai; and that the PMDC has been evicted from their head office at Hannah Benka- Coker Street.
Addressing a press briefing at their Party’s Office, the Publicity Secretary disclosed that “we are not in disarray; we are intact as we are a formidable party in the country”.
He added that, “we have organized structures across the country” and that the only reason that people are not hearing about PMDC is simply because politics is over and we are busy organizing the party internally.
On the constitution, Bangura emphasized that, in the past few weeks a section of PMDC executive including himself, have embarked on a familiarization tour on post election problems; and to also inform its members about the upcoming delegates conference which is suppose to take place in April from 6th – 12th .
During the recent tour, it was recommended by many people that the party should postpone the leadership contest, he said.
He said that since the General Elections would take place in 2012, PMDC supporters across the country suggested only the position of National Chairman down wards should be declared vacant during the conference.
The position of leadership, he said, should be left for the conference in 2011; adding that supporters believe that by postponing the leadership contest it would give the party the opportunity to attract more people for the leadership position.
Bangura pointed out that the National Executive held a meeting where they discussed and agreed on the suggestions made by its members; and it was also agreed to organize a two- day consultative meeting where delegates from all the constituencies would attend.
The meeting he said is slated for the 28- 29 November, to be held in Makeni.
