G2K's Seiveright denies resignation rumours

Seiveright, who was re-elected to serve a third consecutive term in November, told the Observer yesterday that there was no truth to the report.
"All rumours," was all Seiveright was prepared to say when contacted.
Seiveright's G2K has been blamed for waging a negative media campaign against People's National Party leader Portia Simpson Miller in the campaign for the December 29 polls.
