PLP dismisses reports of challenge on Bean

The Progressive Labour Party has dismissed reports that Marc Bean's position was challenged at Thursday night's caucus meeting.

A statement from the party, released yesterday, said: “The report running in the media that the Progressive Labour Party leader, Marc Bean, last night narrowly won an internal vote for leadership is not only untrue, but malevolent.

“The power within the PLP to replace a leader lies with the party delegates, not the caucus, and as such no vote was taken within caucus regarding Mr Bean's leadership as has been claimed.”
