NIGEL Hughes, Chairman of the Alliance For Change (AFC), said last evening he had resigned his position. He did not offer an explanation, but said he would issue a statement.The news came a day after the party said it would ask the David Granger-led coalition to trim the powers of Minister of State Joseph Harmon, who is involved in a controversy over his appointment of business magnate Brian Tiwarie as an advisor without their knowledge, and after news surfaced that Tiwarie and Harmon had travelled to China.

The resignation may have to do with the AFC statement issued on Sunday, with the party choosing to end its statement on Hughes’s decision, declaring that its position on Harmon was unanimously approved.

“The Alliance For Change confirms that at a statutory Management Committee meeting of the party (Monday), Chairman Nigel Hughes made an announcement with regard to his Chairmanship of the party,” the AFC stated.

“The party confirms unequivocally that the statement issued on April 10th following its leadership retreat was one which was unanimously approved by the attendees of the leadership retreat.

“The party will make no further statement on this matter at this time”, the AFC statement said.
