  1. Very welcome move by the SG. This will put to rest the infighting currently perpetuated by the underground movement. Let their leader now come in the open to declare his interest for the high post. However will lose will have to support the winner and not start his own party .
    MCP Take lesson from this. It is the SG who convenes such meetings not party president. The SG is the CEO of the political party.
