West Hanover Member of Parliament, Ian Hayles, has come out in support of Peter Bunting’s bid to take over leadership of the opposition People’s National Party, PNP, from Dr. Peter Phillips.

The endorsement of Bunting by Hayles comes as the battle for the presidency of the PNP is intensifying.

Mr. Hayles is a former PNP Region 6 Chairman.

He says he believes the current leadership challenge is energizing the party.

Mr. Hayles says he’s in no doubt that Mr. Bunting is the right man to lead the PNP.
