Incumbent PNP President, Dr Peter Phillips, has successfully staved off a challenge from Central Manchester MP, Peter Bunting.

After several hours of voting at the National Arena, the delegates of the People’s National Party have decided to retain Dr. Peter Phillips as President of the Opposition People’s National Party.

Some 2990 delegates were eligible to vote in the PNP presidential contest.

Phillips arrived at the National arena at around 12:30 this afternoon to cheering comrades and said he was confident he would have retained the presidency of the party.

Phillips told Nationwide news today that his priority after today’s election would be to prepare the party for the next general elections.
