The country’s latest political party, the Third Force Movement has decided to discontinue its drive to offer itself to the electorate at the September 7th general election.
TFM, in explaining its reason for the move, said there was not enough time to form a cohesive framework for a full –fledged political party.
In a media release this afternoon, Chairman of the TFM, Timothy Hamel Smith, said since the formation of the party on July 3rd ( less than a fortnight ago) it made what it described as enormous strides with large crowds of enthusiastic supporters joining them at their rallies.
Hamel Smith expressed regret to supporters who showed allegiance to the TFM.
However, he noted that it is better for the TFM to prepare itself on a sound structural footing now, so as not to disappoint its followers in the future.
The former Senate President insisted that this is not the end of the TFM.
Some of the areas high on the agenda of the TFM are the implementation of the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Property Act 2015, enactment of party and campaign financing legislation and constitution amendment.
