OBA: No leadership challenge at party conference

The leadership of Premier Craig Cannonier and Deputy Michael Dunkley won't be challenged at the upcoming One Bermuda Alliance annual conference.

This means the two are to continue in their present roles as Leader and Deputy Leader for the next four years.

Party chairman Thad Hollis, whose place was also uncontested, will also remain for another two years. As yet, there have been no nominations for the two positions of deputy chair.

An OBA spokesman said that “a further attempt to fill these two important offices will be held in the New Year”.

The conference, which takes place Saturday, October 19 and is open to all OBA members, starts at 7pm in the Fairmont Southampton hotel.

Mr Hollis said the absence of contenders for the top positions signalled an endorsement by the OBA membership of the party leadership.

Membership will hear from Mr Cannonier and OBA Ministers on the work in their respective portfolios, and will get a chance to discuss issues with them.

The conference will close with a fundraiser for the Eliza Doolittle Foundation.
