The People’s National Movement is today denying a newspaper report that the son of Yasin Abu Bakr, Fuad Abu Bakr is scheduled to be screened for the party ahead of the upcoming general election.

The Trinidad Express Newspaper, in an earlier report, said “Political leader of the New National Vision (NNV), Fuad Abu Bakr, has confirmed that he will be facing the Screening Committee of People’s National Movement (PNM) today, as a prospective candidate for the constituency of Port of Spain South.“

The PNM’s PR officer, Laurel Lee Sing, in a media statement issued, says there is no truth to this.
