*UPP announces week of events for its 12th Biennial Convention, starting April 14*

The United Progressive Party (UPP) has laid out plans for its 12th Biennial Convention, which will see activities spread across the course of one week.

The theme for the event is “Together in Unity: Forward to Victory,” and its aim is for the Party to emerge from the Convention even stronger than before.

According to the chair of the Convention Planning Committee, Harold Lovell, a Thanksgiving Service to bless the event will be held at 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 14, at the Christian Assembly Ministries in Paynters, the church of its chaplain, Pastor Paul Andrew.

Monday, April 15, is Media Day, he says, and the Party intends to have its representatives and spokespersons on most of the radio stations and across the social-media platforms.

They will recount and celebrate the UPP’s accomplishments during its 10-year tenure and discuss the economic and governance issues now wracking the Nation.

All work and no play would not be appropriate, Lovell says, and so, on Tuesday evening, April 16, the constituency branches and the Executive will gather for a night of karaoke and games at the Barefoot Bar at Pensioners Beach.

An appreciation day follows on Wednesday, when the Party will undertake its “Outreach to Our Stalwarts,” an exercise of recognition and appreciation for retired supporters who helped blaze the trail.

Then the Party’s youth will connect on Thursday, April 18, for an evening of fraternity and discussion after hearing from a dynamic young politician from Jamaica.

The Convention opens officially with a grand ceremony of speeches by overseas guests, entertainment, and recommitment on Saturday night, April 20, at the Multi-Purpose Centre, and is expected to attract hundreds of supporters.

Its business session takes place on Sunday, April 21, and will culminate in the election of a new Central Executive Committee, which will run the UPP’s affairs for the next two years.

More details, particularly on the guest speakers, will be shared over the coming weeks, Lovell assures.
