Prospective People’s National Party President Dr Peter Phillips has acknowledged that the absence of an internal leadership election does not mean it will be easier for the successor of Portia Simpson Miller.

Yesterday, Peter Bunting announced that he was withdrawing his intention to run for the post of PNP president.

According to Bunting, based on his consultations; Dr Phillips has garnered the majority of support and so he was instead endorsing the East Central St Andrew MP.

However, speaking on Nationwide Radio, Phillips said there is still a great deal of work to be done.
