Door to door campaign

WIPM party leader Wilson during Monday’s gathering called on the eight candidates to work hard and run a clean campaign. “Go out there and campaign. Focus on the issues, highlight our party’s track record, campaign on a high level. Go from door to door, talk with the people, because that is who we work for and that is who we want to make things better for,” said Wilson.

The WIPM will have its first rally on February 20 during which it will release the party program.
