A motion is to come to remove Congress of the People political leader Prakash Ramadhar.
This according to sources within the party, who say members were disenchanted with the UNC and were urging the COP executive to also make a clean break and stand alone.
The source said there were several instances where the COP Government members were being sidelined and treated with scant courtesy by the UNC members.
On Sunday, during a heated executive meeting, it was revealed that the motion was being circulated to remove Mr. Ramadhar as leader.
The five-point motion states, inter alia, that the membership had lost confidence in the political leader to direct and control the party in a manner which is consistent with the philosophy, principles and directives of the People’s Charter.
Several members said they intended to raise that at the next national executive meeting, but it was being blocked by party chairman Carolyn Seepersad-Bachan.
