A senior figure in the Congress of the People is not of the view that the party has had to settle for a relegated position within the coalition administration.
The assessment comes from Member of Parliament for Lopinot \Bon Air West and Minister of Arts and Multiculturalism, Dr Lincoln Douglas.
Speaking on the Election Hard Talk Programme on Power 1021fm Tuesday afternoon hosted by Tony Fraser, he dismissed claims that the COP has been pushed on the back burner in the People’s Partnership tenure.
However, Dr Douglas who at one point vied for the helm of the COP said with a stronger leadership push the COP could have been a better and stronger position within the coalition.
He said the coalition arrangement could have also served as a firm platform to achieving unity among the political parties in the system but added all is not lost.
