Resurgence – the Catholic political party – at its Annual General Meeting on the 30th January 2010, decided to test the electoral waters and stick its toe in to the upcoming General Election. The Party is calling on Catholics, disenchanted with the existing political parties, who are willing to stand as Candidates in their own Constituency and who want to stand on a manifesto based on Catholic Social Teaching to volunteer their services.
Normal service is being resumed following the last four hectic months.
October was dominated by preparations for the Ordinary General Meeting held at the end of the month. All members take part in every General Meeting, but the OGM is extra important because it is the Policy making conference. For 2009 the emphasis was on constitutional and electoral reform. These topics were the subject of posts [see below] and the comments received were taken in to account when drafting the document that was considered by the OGM. The decisions taken have now been incorporated in to the Party Programme.
