Former party leader and president of the People’s Democratic Party, Lynda Tabuya and Vijay Singh yesterday officially informed the Registrar of Political Parties of their resignation.

She said the decision to resign and join SODELPA was decided on December 7th, during a PDP management board meeting.

“Informing Mr Saneem is a matter of information    that the registered officers of PDP have changed.

“I informed him that PDP has a new treasurer, Mark Anthony and General Secretary Pearl Antonio – who will both be running the party while we sit out next year’s General Elections.”

This is part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between PDP and SODELPA.

Ms Tabuya was announced as a candidate of SODELPA on December 9 while Mr Singh was named as one of three vice presidents.

Ms Tabuya said the decision to finally take the leap came after numerous talks with other parties were going nowhere.

“We finally moved to do one on one talks with other party leaders to get a better idea of where we needed to go. The management board decided that the best way is to go with SODELPA.

She said SODELPA has similar policies and manifesto as PDP compared to the National Federation Party.
