Up to news time the United National Congress (UNC) had not named its candidate. The party has until 3 p.m. today to file its nomination papers.
The Peoples National Movement (PNM) candidate is former senator Terrence Deyalsingh.
He filed his nomination papers after 9 o clock this morning at the Elections and Boundaries Commission’s (EBC) office at #96 Aranjuez, Main Road.
The ILP’s candidate, Attorney Om Lalla, would file his nomination papers by 10 o clock.
