Hayles Seeks to Mend Fences with DK


The new Chairman of the PNP’s Region Six, Ian Hayles is seeking to mend fences with his predecessor, Dr. DK Duncan.

Last week, Dr. Duncan blasted Mr. Hayles for his decision to challenge him for chairmanship of the Region. Dr. Duncan withdrew from the race, citing among other things, the disrespectful conduct of Mr. Hayles.

But addressing comrades at a meeting in St. James on the weekend, Mr. Hayles says it’s time for unity.

Mr. Hayles says he would not criticize Dr. Duncan publicly.
