Former opposition leader Stephenson King continues to clear himself of accusations levelled against him by the hierarchy of the United Workers Party (UWP).
The UWP management claimed King frequently absented himself from its executive meetings. King said the party had conveniently used this allegation, as well as a meeting he attended with the prime minister following the Christmas Eve trough, as reasons to convene a special meeting of the party’s National Council to dismiss him as opposition leader.
During a questionand answer session at a Chase Gardens constituency meeting, King said since he was not part of “Team Chastanet” he is not surprised at how political developments in the party have unfolded since the last UWP convention.
“If Mr. Chastanet went as far as forming and campaigning with his team of members then it stands to reason that party members outside of Mr. Chastanet’s team would not have been welcomed after the convention,“ he remarked.
