Premier believes Suckoo took a risk leaving the party

Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin feels confident about the job he and he has team have done to date.

He appeared on our talk show The Panel and believes the Progressives will cross the finish line first in next year’s general election due to the administration’s performance.

However, he couldn’t say the same for his former ppm colleague Al Suckoo who left the party recently over the same sex union issue. “I think he has taken a huge risk. I suspect though he has been certain promises by certain people. There is no way he is going to be able to navigate the next election campaign on his own. He is going to have to be a part of some team,” said the premier, responding to a question about Mr. Suckoo’s chance at the polls.

As for Mr. Suckoo, he tells us his focus at this time is on this term and doing the job he is honoured to hold. He will turn his attention to the next election at the appropriate time.
