The troubles of the ruling UBP party have been well documented over the past few weeks.

At the moment of its deepest crisis in office however, the party has rejected calls for an early election and has instead formed a new coalition.

Last night the UBP held what was described as a ‘stormy meeting’ and agreed to form a coalition with two junior parties to bolster its strength. Accordingly the DP (Democratic Party) and ORP (Freedom and Reform Party) have folded into the UBP, a move which added three members of parliament to the ranks.
