The People's National Party (PNP) has said a mediation committee has been established to assist in settling rifts that occurred between members during the campaign for the recent presidential election.
Speaking at a media briefing at the party headquarters Wednesday afternoon, PNP General Secretary Julian Robinson said the healing process has already started and will be continued by the committee because "we recognise things have been said which would hurt individuals, and that the mediation committee will address."
He said following a meeting last week between Peter Bunting and Dr. Peter Phillips, teams have been established to help address concerns from both sides of the fence.
Mr. Bunting, who challenged Dr. Peter Phillips for the presidency, will address the PNP's annual conference on Sunday as a sign of unity.
Mr. Robinson said policies and programmes which will be part of the People's National Party's manifesto for the next general election will also be discussed at a private session on Saturday.
The private session, involving delegates of the party, will be held at the Jamaica College auditorium on Old Hope Road in St. Andrew.
