I don't know about you guys but I am skeptical about those numbers - 10,000 new persons joining the UNC just prior to internal elections? This is strange since so many have expressed their dismay with the direction had gone in recent months. There is continual fighting in the party and let's face it the base of the UNC has been set for years now so where have all these new members been and what has prompted them to register at this time?
Well one can assume that people want change and they have registered to let their voices be heard in the upcoming internal UNC elections scheduled for Jan 24, 2009. On the other hand one can assume that something is brewing and somebody's hand is adding ingredients to the pot to skew the results of the upcoming elections.
The old guard of Panday and company will not unite with Dookeran's COP and that, my friends is the only hope of removing the PNM from power. Just remember that the PNM won the elections but lost the popular vote - keep that in mind when you vote on January 24, 2010!
