UBP Conference to be held end August

15 August 2013

The UBP party announced yesterday that it would hold its general conference on August 31st.

Initially the leader of the party and ex-Prime Minister Irsen Kucuk had set a date of mid-October.

It is claimed that he had wanted time to work out how he could lead his party even though he holds no seat in parliament having failed to be re-elected in the recently held elections.

He then began manoeuvering within the party, including sacking potential competitors for his job.

However, given a strong adverse reaction by party members and a hostile press, he has now brought forward the conference date and confirmed that he will be resigning during its session.
