The  Chairman of the Progressive Liberal Party Senator Fred Mitchell  has  issued a warning about the misuse and abuse of the symbol of the Progressive Liberal Party.  In a Press statement yesterday,  Mr. Mitchell said, “It has come to the attention of the  Party that the official symbol and designed letters PLP are being used and appropriated by those not authorized to use them.

‘We remind vendors, providers of services and others generally that the use of the PLP’s symbols and designed letters belong to the Trustees of the PLP and may only be used to indicate officially sanctioned party activities with the permission of the party. This can be confirmed by a letter of authority issued by the Secretary General Barbara Cartwright,” he said.

The Senator  said, “Candidates who have not been nominated officially to run for the House of Assembly, but are canvassing for nominations within the party should not, and are not,  permitted to use the symbols of the PLP for any solicitations and campaigns or other canvassing events without the express permission of the party as signified in writing by the Secretary General Barbara Cartwright or the local branch chair.

“Newspapers, periodicals, print media and electronic media are reminded that no ads or announcements in local districts in the name of the PLP should be accepted unless the person is a duly authorized branch chair of a constituency or an officer of such a branch authorized by the Chair of the Branch. National ads and announcements come through the Secretary General,” said Mr. Mitchell.
