Gulak said BOT members should endeavour to attend the January 14 meeting of the board so that they can elect a new Chairman.
He stated that the party’s leadership organs including the BOT, National Executive Council (NEC) and National Working Committe (NWC) were not properly constituted and that the expiration of the BOT chairman’s tenure in August 2015 necessitated his call as part of plans to reposition the party.
He said the January 14 meeting of the party’s BOT was called so that the leadership of one of the party’s main organs is properly constituted.
