JUNIOR ROSE, president of the People's National Party Youth Organisation (PNPYO), yesterday said he would be seeking election as a vice-president of the parent party.
"A number of persons have come to me over the past couple of weeks indicating to me that they want me to run. I have considered it long and hard, more so hard than long, and I do have a contribution to make," Rose told The Gleaner.
Nominations for the party's four vice-presidential posts opened July 9 and will close on July 31.
Rose is the first person to publicly declare his intention to challenge for a position. Having taken over the job as PNPYO president following the resignation of Damion Crawford last year, Rose said he was in the home stretch as it relates to that job.
"This is my last two to three months. There is also the proposal to move to another level in the party because of my particular interest to serve. If I am called to serve, I will serve. I have been called to serve," Rose told The Gleaner.
The current vice-presidents are Angela Brown Burke, Derrick Kellier, Noel Arscott and Dr Fenton Ferguson.
