President of the People’s National Party, Portia Simpson Miller, was not pushed into stepping down.
That’s the assertion of former General Secretary of the PNP, Paul Burke.
This, as he’s dismissing suggestions that Mrs. Simpson Miller was forced to step down as leader of the PNP.
Mr. Burke says Mrs. Simpson Miller had indicated that the PNP’s Annual Conference in September this year would’ve been the last time she’d have offered herself for leadership.
Mrs. Simpson Miller announced on Sunday at the PNP’s National Executive Council that she’ll not be seeking re-election as PNP President.
Mr. Burke says last Thursday, she advised the officers of the party of her timetable for departure.
