The Progressive Democrats admits it faces tough time to maintain presence at national level.

The coming months are expected to be critical for the future of the Progressive Democrats.

The PD's appear to be still considering if they have a future after their dismal showing in last summers general election, while other political parties are planning ahead for the future.

The party has already been hit by defections to rival organisations and it has a lot of tough decisions to make before considering its strategy for the electoral contests of 2009.

Party sources admit it faces a tough time to maintain a presence at local and national level.
