Legal Action Filed Against COP Leader Over Leadership Election

LEADERSHIP elections for the Congress of the People (COP) will go ahead on August 20, even as the party faces a legal challenge over the running for office of former deputy chair Nicole Dyer-Griffith.

In a statement at the weekend, interim leader Dr Anirudh Mahabir said the action via the court appeared to be a “concerted effort to prevent the COP from holding elections and continuing to build itself as a real alternative to the established political parties”.

The party last week received notice of legal action filed in the High Court by party member Kirt Francis against Mahabir and general secretary Clyde Weatherhead.

The action questioned the legitimacy of Dyer-Griffith to contest the election, which was postponed from July 9 over the same legal threat.

Francis claimed COP’s ratification of Dyer-Griffith’s membership was null and void as it fell short of the party’s constitutional rules.
