GIBRALTAR is to make history by holding the first ever leadership election of a major political party on the Rock.

The battle to lead the Gibraltar Social Democrats opposition party will be contested by acting leader Daniel Feetham and Damon Bossino.

The position became available after party leader Peter Caruana announced his decision to step down at the end of January.

GSD Chairman Ernest Britto said: “This is now a fully fledged leadership election contest and it is up to the candidates to fight their campaign. My role will be to administer the process in an impartial manner.”

Bossino, who was elected into parliament in the December 2011 general election, described the contest as ‘a defining moment in our history’.
