Campaign Manager for People’s National Party presidential aspirant Peter Bunting, Dr Dayton Campbell, says the Central Manchester MP, was not expected to attend this morning’s anti-corruption vigil staged by the party.

He also hit back at PNP Vice President Damion Crawford.

Mr Crawford posted on social media, that he was sticking with the Peter who walked with him during the East Portland by election, suggesting that Bunting never supported him during that campaign.

Mr Crawford has publicly declared his support for Dr Phillips.

Dr Campbell also says Mr Bunting has provided more leadership in the party than Dr Phillips has.
