LIDEM outlines priorities, launches new site
The ‘new’ government party LIDEM (For the People) which splintered from Public Affairs earlier this year outlined its programme and key priorities on Friday, putting stress on economic and individual freedom. A representative for the party also revealed that LIDEM was readying to launch a beta-version of a new website on the day. The party was founded by former Public Affairs politicians led by Peake, who defected from Public Affairs after its de facto leader was found guilty in a corruption case. Members loyal to the original party joined the opposition.
