“Each of us will name a team led by the respective Campaign Managers that will meet and resolve any issues, which have the potential for causing conflict. Each campaign is being dismantled. There will be no recrimination or victimisation of any form even as the normal party functions,” he said.

Both have agreed that their supporters should desist from attacks on other Party supporters on social media or otherwise and that the Party’s Code of Conduct and rules should be observed.
