Beverley Ramsey–Moore has been voted as the new president of Pan Trinbago.

Mrs Ramsey-Moore, current manager of Petrotrin Kat-zen-jammers Steel Orchestra, received 116 votes to beat out the other 7 candidates at the organisation’s internal elections on Sunday.

She replaces embattled incumbent Keith Diaz and has become the first woman to be in charge of the national pan body.

Ramsey-Moore contested the Pan Trinbago elections under the Team-Rebuild banner.

Mrs Ramsey Moore said her first order of business will be to review Pan Trinbago’s constitution with a particular focus on separating the powers of the executive and administrative arms of the organisation.

Former Port of Spain mayor Keron Valentine finished second with 54 votes.

Other candidates included Darren Sheppard, Keith Byer, Thecla Forde-Rodriguez, Vernon Morancie and businessmen Lawford Duprey and Robert Amar.
