Mobile phones banned from PLP meeting
The ruling Progressive Labour Party’s central committee held a lengthy meeting last night at Bermuda Industrial Union headquarters, with the party’s executive expected to outline its decisions in calling for the ousting of Damon Wade as party chairman last month.
The executive had unanimously backed a motion of no confidence in Mr Wade’s leadership at the emergency meeting, after the chairman accused David Burt, the party leader and Premier, along with members of his Cabinet, of blocking a business project he had backed at the National Sports Centre in Devonshire.
Mr Burt arrived shortly after 7pm last night at a gathering that included Walter Roban, the Deputy Premier; Zane DeSilva, the Minister of Tourism and Transport, and MPs Derrick Burgess, Tinée Furbert, Lawrence Scott and Kim Swan.
Attendees said they had been asked not to use mobile phones, as recordings of the committee’s previous meeting were shared on social media.
