Dr. Peter Phillips
Opposition Leader Dr. Peter Phillips is seeking to rebut the arguments being made against his party that it is not attractive to young people and is out of touch with the younger voices of the country.
Dr. Phillips is arguing that the party remains a preferred option for young persons at the membership and candidate level.
Discussion has intensified since the leadership challenge was announced by Manchester Central MP, Peter Bunting.
There are questions about the party's ability to secure young voters in the next general election.
But Dr. Phillips has suggested that evidence shows the party has a history of being attractive to young persons who want to vote as well as become political candidates for the PNP.
"We have always had as a party a combination of experience, youth, energy, and people willing to work as part of a team going forward. that's what I have seen in the entire history of the party and I expect that that is what will be successful now," he asserted.
He addressed the matter Wednesday while speaking on TVJ's All Angles, dismissing the concerns as "a narrative contrived by some."
