Dr. Peter Phillips’ position as Opposition Leader is becoming increasingly uncertain as a bitter feud has again erupted in the 81-year old Opposition PNP.
On Thursday, 15-opposition MPs wrote Dr. Phillips and requested a meeting about the future of the PNP.
Dr. Phillips responded to the letter from the 15 MPs by e-mailing Mr. Bunting. Phillips said he’d ask General Secretary, Julian Robinson, to organize the meeting as soon as possible.
Meantime, some prominent Peter Phillips supporters have reacted angrily to the move of the 15 Opposition MPs to request a meeting with Dr. Phillips.
According to the Phillips supporters, the motion would seek to have Bunting and the other 14 MPs who signed the letter requesting a meeting expelled from the party if they seek to have the Governor-General remove Dr. Phillips as Opposition Leader.
Over the weekend Elder Statesman and Phillip ally KD Knight urged Peter Phillips to follow the lead of Norman Manley and expell the 15 MP’S who signed the letter summoning Phillips to a meeting to discuss his future.
