PNP Chairman, Robert Pickersgill, says initial soundings suggest that the former PNP-administration paid a price on election day for arrogance.

Mr. Pickersgill shied away from commenting on a call by former House Speaker, Michael Peart, for the entire PNP officer corps to offer their resignations following the election defeat.

But the PNP Chairman says a meal should not be made of the February 25 PNP loss. He says the loss cannot really be described as a defeat.
