Kucuk Refuses to Resign

Kucuk Refuses to Resign

July 29
22:23 2013

MP’s from the UBP rebelled against his personal style of leadership and left the UBP.

That resulted in a vote of no confidence which Kucuk lost.

In the early elections of July 28, the UBP party virtually halved its share of the vote and Mr Kucuk also lost his constituency.

He is therefore not an MP and was widely expected to resign today.

However, LGC news has learnt that he has decided to hold on to the leadership of his UBP party and has informed senior figures of his decision.

There has as yet been no reaction from any UBP politicians but a number of them must have felt that they were contenders to replace Mr Kucuk.

Expect further developments.
