Progressive Labour Party (Bermuda)
In 1996 Jennifer Meredith Smith succeeded to the leadership of the PLP upon the death of L. Frederick Wade . She led her party to victory in parliamentary elections in November 1998, in which the conservative United Bermuda Party, which had controlled the country since autonomy was gained in 1968, suffered an unprecedented defeat. The Progressive Labour Party again won parliamentary elections in July 2003, but less than a week later, she was forced to resign as premier following a revolt within her own party. She was replaced by Alex Scott, who became premier of Bermuda.
