The Peoples National Movement’s (PNM) representative for Port-of-Spain North/St. Ann’s West has said she will not put herself up for re-election next year.
Former Secondary School principal Patricia McIntosh disclosed that around mid-term she realized that she could not have continued.
Ms. McIntosh informed the PNM of her decision over a month ago.
She said while service is in her nature, politics was not for her.
In 2010, Ms. McIntosh won her seat with some 8,000 votes beating then United National Congress (UNC) candidate Annabelle Davis.
Party members in the constituency have until October 5th to submit a name for the screening two days later.
