Open door policy

THE People's Democratic Party says anybody can join their party.

Responding to questions regarding the involvement of unionists, PDP general secretary Sat Narayan said the party had an open door policy.

Former party spokesman Nirmal Singh announced his resignation from the party over the weekend and one of the reasons Mr Singh cited was the involvement of unionists in party affairs.

Mr Narayan said the involvement of unionists was no business of Mr Singh's. According to the Registration of Political Parties Decree, unionists can not represent the party or be active members of the party. To do so, they will have to resign from their posts first. On other matters, Mr Narayan said candidacy had not been decided yet.

He said the party's executive committee would have to get together and decide on a date to call for applications from suitable and interested individuals.

Mr Narayan added the party's constitution allowed women and youths to be members of the party. On matters such as meeting with the Electoral Commission, Mr Narayan said the national executives would have to discuss the matter first. He said there were important matters which needed to be discussed with the commission and they need to go in prepared.
