“When people are comfortable, then I will speak,” says Peter Bunting.
The Central Manchester Member of Parliament says members of the party felt uncomfortable with him addressing the party at its 81st annual conference yesterday, Sunday September 23.
He was scheduled to speak, at 12:40 p.m.
However, rejected the opportunity without reason according to the PNP’s general secretary, Julian Robinson.
Since then Bunting has spoken saying he had information that members of the party’s hierarchy, were not comfortable with him addressing the people and so he felt they needed more time to heal and unify so he decided not to speak.
Bunting was defeated in his attempt to be president of People’s National Party (PNP), earlier this month.
