Western Hanover MP, Ian Hayles, says self-interest in the post of president of the PNP is the reason why some members of the party, aren’t supporting Peter Bunting’s bid to be its next president.

Mr. Hayles says he encouraged Bunting to challenge Dr. Peter Phillips.

Ian Hayles speaking at the Negril Golf Club in Westmoreland earlier this week.

He says in the earlier stages of the campaign, persons from Dr. Phillips’ camp said Bunting’s Rise United team would lose the upcoming September 7 election.

However, he says these persons are now querying what position they will hold in a Bunting-led PNP.
