​Prakash resigns as COP leader

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Prakash Ramadhar has resigned as the political leader of the Congress of the People.

In a press release from the COP head office, COP general secretary Clyde Weatherhead stated that Ramadar tendered his demittal from office to the party’s national executive last night.

Weatherhead said, “In his letter, Mr Ramadhar has indicated an effective date for his decision which he suggests will ‘allow the party sufficient time to organise an election to decide on a successor and facilitate immediate transition which will ensure the continued work of the COP in charting its future which we started at the retreat last year.”

Ramadhar’s resignation will be further discussed at the National Council meeting scheduled for Sunday.
