Member of Parliament for Cumuto/Manzanilla, Christine Newallo-Hosein is a surprise challenger for the post of Political Leader for the United National Congress in the party’s upcoming internal elections.
Mrs. Newallo-Hosein’s nomination papers were verified yesterday by the Party’s elections Committee.
Speaking this morning on CNC3, the Cumuto/Manzanilla MP says she put herself up for the post of political leader as it cannot be business as usual in the party.
Final nominations for the post of political leader will be filed on November 15th. Vasant Bharath and incumbent Kamla Persad-Bissessar are also expected to challenge the post.
