The last time the decision to compete was made was last December. Moreover, the party’s infighting has turned out to be a municipal election as it snatched the chance to win the last 2017 legislative election. The reasons for this were the removal of 7 MLAs from the party. The impact will be felt in the forthcoming legislative elections as well. ”
