Guam - It was last month when the Democratic Party of Guam elected its new leadership and this evening an inaugural ball is to be held at the Hyatt Hotel. Incoming chairman Senator Rory Respicio says the event is a manifestation of the party coming together, noting, "There's collegiality, there's a recognition that we all have to be in this together and this will be an event to build upon our inauguration that's scheduled for January 25 at the Azetea. So you'll start to see a lot of things happening by the party."

At least 500 people are expected to attend tonight ball which is chaired by Speaker Judi Won Pat.

As for any special announcement of a gubernatorial team for next year's election, Respicio says he doesn't expect anything tonight. He does however say should there be no gubernatorial team announced after the party's first meeting next year that the central executive committee would move forward and exercise it's authority to draft a ticket.
