    • Women are more exciting candidates these days.
      So PF change your candidate, go for a woman.
      This is boring.

  1. #2.1 Ichalo, that ‘s a no brainer. You have not looked at the picture? The candidate will ditch trib.al upnd a week before elections.
    Really laughable this so called party is!

  2. PF is already scared, this man is winning as he has been campaigning silently. In 2021 and there after,PF will join Unip in oblivion.

  3. #4 chatasha : “In 2021 and there after,PF will join Unip in oblivion.”

    Free correction: “In 2021 and there after, trib.al upnd will join Unip in oblivion.”

    Actually unip has better chances of resurrection that trib.al upnd.
