The United People’s Party, having already proven in the 2012 Local Elections that a small party on a shoestring budget, inexperienced candidates and stiff competition from the mainstream parties can still receive respectable results, is now gearing itself up to fight an organised and effective election campaign in 2013.
With this amount of time on our side, we are hoping to make a meaningful impact in these elections and build on the results we received a mere week ago.
Even as you read this, brand new leaflets, posters and information packs are being designed, prospective candidates are already being lined up and local Branches are continuing to better establish themselves in local communities.
We have learnt a lot in the last few months and we are keen to exploit this newfound knowledge and experience and turn it into electoral victories next year.
Our financial reserves still run into the thousands, our membership base continues to expand and our existing Branches are growing with new ones soon to be set up all over the country.
2013 is as good an opportunity as any to step up and take on the main players in the political arena head on. We can do this!
