People’s National Movement (PNM) leader Dr. Keith Rowley and former Prime Minister Patrick Manning may have patched-up their thorny relationship, since the San Fernando West MP was showered with praises by a man he once condemned.
Dr. Rowley said the former PNM leader has him where he is today.
Dr. Rowley stated that the time he spent with Mr. Manning was time spent building the country.
With next year’s election on the doorstep and Mr. Manning intention to leave politics after 45 years, Dr. Rowley has to find a candidate to fill the former leader’s shoes.
He said Mr. Manning’s San Fernando East constituency is very important to his party.
Dr. Rowley made the comments while speaking at function in Mr. Manning’s honour at Paria Suites Hotel, La Romaine.
