No victimisation: Phillips commits to having Bunting supporters in new Shadow Cabinet

Dr. Peter Phillips
 
Opposition Leader Dr. Peter Phillips says there will be no victimisation as he prepares to reshuffle the Shadow Cabinet.
 
Some Shadow Spokepersons, who were supporters of Peter Bunting's Rise United campaign, offered their resignation following Saturday's presidential election.
 
However, Dr. Phillips asked them to stay on until after the People's National Party's annual conference on September 22.
 
The PNP president has given the assurance that some of the current spokespersons who supported Peter Bunting in the presidential race will be in the new Shadow Cabinet.
 
"There'll be no recriminations on the basis of support of one campaign or another," Dr. Phillips said, adding: "I believe every single one of those persons are persons committed to the welfare and well-being of the People's National Party." 
 
He was speaking at a media briefing at PNP headquarters Wednesday morning, where the party moved to heal rifts that occurred during the campaign for the presidency.
 
Following Tuesday's meeting involving Dr. Phillips and Mr. Bunting, both men agreed to dismantle the One PNP and Rise United campaign teams.
 
Dr. Phillips said a team will be named comprising members of both campaigns to resolve issues that could cause conflict in the party.
 
The team, which will be led by the respective campaign managers, will meet next week. 
 
One PNP funds 
 
In the meantime, Dr. Phillips is still tallying the amount spent on his One PNP campaign. While he did not give a figure, he said that camp  was financed "very widely by donations that came from individuals, members within the party...some corporate donors (as well as a) number of small donations from people all across the country...who contributed propably the greater share of what came."
